Established in 1954 by Mr L Malherbe who named the farm after his children - Suzan, Helene, Elizabeth, Izak, Louise and Marsha thereby the name SHEILAM. Mr Malherbe was already 70 years old when he started the farm with his collection of old plants. In 1967 the farm was bought by Lloyd and Winnie Schwegmann, Lloyd extended the farm with his personal collection of plants. Since 2003 the farm is owned by Garth and Minette Schwegmann.
