Garstkolk was bought in 1963 by the Latsky Family. Garstkolk is situated between Carnarvon and Van Wyksvlei which is in the Groot Karoo. Today the farm is still being run by the Latsky family. The farming consists mainly of sheep farming (Dorper). The veld at Garstkolk consists of karoobossie, kapokbos and ganna which make it an excellent area to farm with sheep.
