Several Wolseley Businesses flourish in the valley, providing much needed employment and support to the Wolseley and surrounding Witzenberg communities. Wolseley lies on a natural watershed dividing the Berg and Breede Rivers. The resulting abundance of water enables a variety of farming to occur in the valley, including fruit, vegetables, olives, wheat, dairy, sheep and grapes. Wolseley is situated just an hour and a half from Cape Town along the R46. The main railway line from Cape Town to the interior passes through Wolseley and commuters can make use of Metro rail's Boland Blitz service. The junction to Ceres was opened in 2016 by Ceres Rail and businesses in Wolseley can now take advantage of the freight service to Cape Town.
