For Chris, the Karoo is a lifestyle, it's his income and he is his own boss. He doesn’t have to work in an office, the Karoo veld is his office. He farms with Merinos and also produces lusern. The Merino delivers a soft and tender meat of good quality and also fine quality wool. He makes sure he does not disturb the sheep in their environment; he keeps the pastures natural and therefore produces an unaffected free-range product.
Soil conservation is very important. If overgrazing occurs, there are no bushes that can stop the rain and it washes everything away and so there’s no food for the animals.
Chris likes biking and bowling games. In the Karoo you can be yourself, you have a peaceful life. The field cares for you and your family and so you should manage it well and respect it. The Karoo is his lifestyle and his future and his offspring's future, make the best of it and enjoy it.
