One of Cape Town’s most celebrated wine farms, Spier, has added a new experience to their ever-growing list of things to do at the farm, in addition to drinking great wine, of course. Now you can stroll through a stunning, functional garden and even harvest your own produce.
Over the last 18 months, an old horse paddock at the farm has been transformed into a thriving food garden. The garden’s bounty includes fruits, herbs, salad greens and vegetables — all cultivated using eco-friendly and regenerative techniques.
The Spier Food Garden is now open daily to visitors from 9am to sunset. Meander through it at your own pace, exploring its seasonal bounty, and meet the paddle of 15 Indian Runner ducks who roam freely through the garden doing pest control.
The garden’s delicious and nutrient-rich produce is used in Spier’s restaurants and can be purchased online and from the Spier Farm Café. Want to get in on the action? You are now also able to harvest your own — directly from the garden!
For just R150, take home a box crammed full of seasonal goodness to nourish you in the week ahead.
Self-Harvest Saturdays run from 9am to 11am every Saturday morning. Advanced booking is essential and can be made at www.spier.co.za.
