Bloemhoek Farm has identified the need for the application of the Farm Site Development Plan to concisely and clearly state the necessary resource acquisition at the specified times in the development process to the production saturation state of the business. The lack of a development plan results in avoidable cost and setbacks in reaching the saturation state of the farm.
The objective of the project is to give a clear and concise method to reach the production saturation state, identifying critical resources and constraints along the timeline and proposing a plan to develop and implement these resources. This method will be in the form of a Farm Site Development Method (FSDM). Extension points where added to the FSDM developed by Van Der Merwe et. al (2013) to accommodate a livestock farm. These extension points where documented and contributed to expanding the FSDM as a universally applicable method.
