General Information:

Playne - Mapumulu Farm - Where the children can go, there the only really permanent settlement can be made. It is pleasant to hear that the district in which Mapumulu Farm lies is most healthy and that children do very well there. The Stanton brothers came from South Africa in 1906, and bought the farm from Mr C. Palmer. It is about 5,000 acres in extent, and about 4 miles from Molo Station. There is plenty of water all over the farm, and the rainfall is about 50 inches per annum. It is 8,500 feet above sea level, very hilly, and an ideal place for sheep. ........... Both Mr H.A. and Mr A.A. Stanton speak hopefully of the future.
