Henri Barry of the farm Lismore, near the mission settlement of Suurbraak in the Swellendam area, farms with his son Jonathan, and he is gradually shifting more of the responsibilities to Jonathan. Jonathan is the fifth generation Barry on the farm, and they are descendants of the family after whom the town Barrydale, not far from Lismore, was named. The farm is situated on the banks of the Buffeljags River and even though he has irrigation rights to the river, Henri does not make use of it. “I do not have a pump on the farm and only make use of gravitation. Half of the farm is situated in the Langeberg mountains, and I get my water from the mountain. We irrigate 120ha of the 150ha irrigable land on the farm.”
