The Engelbrecht family of Groenkol Boerderynear Clanwilliam is well known in the Rooibos industry. Willem Engelbrecht's grandfather, Willie, started farming Rooibos in the 1950s, and was one of the founding farmers and members of the Clanwilliam Tea Co-operative. Willem's father, Oubaas, who was skilled in mechanics, built the first Rooibos machine harvester in the country. Under Willem's leadership, Groenkol broke away from Rooibos Ltd and became one of the first Rooibos Estates to sell its tea on the international market.
