Established in 1971, the German family-owned Delheim farm in Stellenbosch also extends to the sister farm of Delvera, creating a total of 364 hectares. With a quarter – 89 hectares – under conservation, Delheim is passionate about the environment and conservation, as well as community and sustainable development.

Delheim is also a founding member of the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy, serving 28 members within the Simonsberg area. The offices and an environmental outreach centre are situated at Delvera. A series of ecotourism initiatives, from birdwatching to mountain biking trails, have also been developed.

At full moon, Dirtopia organise a full moon hike from Delvera up to the nearby Klapmutskop, which is home to a recently uncovered indigenous yellowwood forest.
