From the rusk recipe that Yoliswa started baking with when we first arrived on the farm and Judy’s long beloved marmalades to Charl’s ice-cream successes and the butter Hanneke started churning during lockdown – we’ve always been baking and making, preserving and preparing things grown on the farm in order to elevate meals served from the kitchen.
So, since it seems boxes are the new baskets and we now make enough products of origin Kalmoesfontein, we’ve put together OUR OWN BOX.
delivered to your door*.
The specific weekly box combo gets sent out on (most**) Tuesdays – let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be on the mailing list.
*Swartland, Cape Town and in between only.
**Subject to availability…
Also, coming soon, daily opportunities to lunch with the team. But, more on that via one or all of our platforms, just now…
It has been such a pleasure being able to welcome guests back to the cottages on the farm and judging by our recent reviews, the feeling is mutual.
Kalmoesfontein provides a very relaxing setting, much needed in these crazy days – to take that to the next level and offer a truly reviving weekend away we have partnered with the [w]holistic mobile treatment company.
After much this way and that way, our accommodation is open for leisure travel for guests from within the Western Cape.
As stated before, we will take extra special care to ensure your visit is safe and virus free. In fact we promise that (as long as you switch off your social media) the farm will help you forget about it all.
The fresh air, wide open space and natural products will leave you feeling revived and restored. The kids can run around and play with the animals or in the various play areas (and generally just get out of your hair for a bit…)
We’re SO ready to welcome guests back to our cottages and to host events and celebrations… While, right now, no one knows when that will be possible again, it doesn’t mean we can’t dream and plot and plan.
If you’ve followed our story for a while you’ll know that we take the family side of our Family Wine business pretty serious. We believe in nurturing the flock and being inspired by each other’s creativity and talents. Half the team is related by blood or wedding band – one side or another. During lockdown Cornelia started painting a family tree on a wall in one of the bathrooms at the Old House Venue (a WIP). This comes in very handy today as I would like to introduce you to one of the youngest talents in the clan.
Introducing Jan Hendrik Hill @jan.h_photos (14), from the Coetzee branch of the tree.
Jan recently spent a few weeks locked down on the farm and used the time to work on his new hobby – photography. He took some amazing pictures with his Nikon camera.
We hope you also got to be a little creative during lock down…
