Since 2009 Angus McIntosh has been farming regeneratively on the iconic Cape Wineland property, the Spier Wine Farm. In 2014 they were the first Africans to be paid carbon credits generated from carbon increases in their pastures. Fertility on the Spier Wine Farm is created by the rotational grazing of animals. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens are moved daily with at least 6 weeks rest before grazing again. The project is developed based on the VM0042 and CDM's AR-AMS0007. Since 2011 soil carbon levels have been measured by the Brookside Soil Laboratory in the USA. The latest results from the April 2023 collection show that since measurements started they have sequestered 154 tons of CO2e per hectare or 12.83 tons of CO2e per hectare per year.
