The Werf Food Garden is taking shape.


The Werf Food Garden is taking shape.

Landscaper Jan Blok and horticulturist Megan McCarthy continue to amaze us with the rapid progress their teams have made in building our new food garden adjacent to the Werf Restaurant. What was a pasture 3 months ago is now being planted and will soon be producing naturally grown vegetables for use in our kitchens and for purchase by Food Garden customers. 

Follow us on twitter @werffoodgarden to stay in touch with the progress and to know when seasonal and just-picked-nutritious produce is available for purchase.

Explore The Boschendal Estate

The Farm

Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories.

Eat & Drink

The Cape Dutch farms were historically renowned for their warm welcome and generous hospitality. What crowned this welcome was the Cape table, laden with wholesome dishes made from ingredients from the farm’s werf and fields.

Weddings & Functions

Boschendal provides an idyllic natural setting for large and small functions. The Boschendal Manor House, Rhone Homestead, The Olive Press, the Werf Restaurant and the beautiful gardens are available to host an array of celebrations or events in a relaxed and tranquil environment.
