Dropped in Monday morning for their famous carrot cake. They kindly agreed to open even though they are normally closed on Mondays. Kind and friendly husband and wife team.

The nature is fantastic and there are different trails depending on how fit and skilled you are. Try this part of the Winelands and I promise you that you will be back again.

We had lunch at this lovely farm recently. The food and service were outstanding and very friendly. The carrot cake is to die for, but so is the bobotie. This is a lovely half-way stop when cycling in the winelands. Comes highly recommended.
