Farmer Redbeard

Hands on Farming

During the summer months, Farmer Redbeard harvests his fruit orchards and vineyards.  So those budding fruit farmers, vintners and wine aficionados can have the chance to experience the magic of the harvest without having to quit their day job. This working holiday can be used for team building or year - end functions, family and school leaver's holiday.

Beekeeping
It is a sweet morning /afternoon outing where one can gets to walk in the footsteps of Farmer Redbeard, the bee keeper and practice the art of smoking the bees, retrieving and spinning out the honey. One's taste buds get to explore the differnt types of honey produced in this area, and which can be enjoyed on fresh homemade bread with tea or coffee on his stoep.

Hiking and Cycling
Being in the open air in the Langeberg mountain on a bicycle or on foot, with enough time for conversation about the bird life or Cape fynbos, is a way to gain an appetite for a home cooked meal that awaits you at the finish line. Stay the night in our farm cottage or Die OU Huis , an original 17th century farmhouse.

School programmes
Wilde Paarde Kloof farm has a heritage rich in South African history and is situated at the foot of the Langeberg Mountain. This land has been conserved with care. The unspoilt flora is diverse. Children of all ages will be helped to value their environment and/or our South African history in a fun way.

Jams and Preserves
Join Farmer Redbeard's wife in her kitchen this summer where she will share her family secrets to making her traditional preserves and jams, or order some to enjoy in the warmth of your own kitchen. Every pot of sticky preserve celebrates the versatility of our fruit.

Potjiekos and Tractor Ride
Join Farmer Redbeard for a Tractor ride into the Langeberg mountains and a potjiekos meal (a traditional meat dish made in a big, black pot) at the heart of Wilde Paarde Kloof. This is a wonderful, cost effective and fun option for birthday parties( for all ages) team building and family outings.
