To Do




The Farm Eatery is a place where you can enjoy the flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambiance in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations. Here, locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made, and the bread freshly baked. A balance of traditional roots and tantalizing countryside cuisine mixed with homely farm vibes and edgy cooking.
