GARDEN

The vast uncomplicated lawn that extends from the farm house is central to the property. It draws one's attention out and up and leaves the eye to seek details in the surrounding gardens and woods.

The gardens are not perfectly manicured. They are not for show. That which grows on the farm grows with intention, making the space functional and foragable. The crabapples are there not only for their fruit but for their blossoms too. The greenhouse nurtures plants and flowers for our flower shop. The waterblommetjies that grow in the dam make the most incredible "waterblommetjiebredie" – a historically native delicacy. Guests can help themselves to the produce in the vegetable garden, or enjoy the fresh farm eggs that get collected and put out in the kitchen.
