In celebration of National Heritage Day, also known as ‘Braai Day', we are hosting a special open-air Ox Roast Farm Feast in front Boschendal's historic Manor House.

The farm feast lunch will be at a long communal table under the oaks with a festive, harvest style atmosphere. Most of the food will be prepared on open fires by the Boschendal chefs with the centre piece being a naturally raised, pasture fed Angus ox that will be put on a spit and slowly roasted over a bed of coals throughout the day.

Expect platters heaped with seasonal farm produce, great wine including some new Boschendal releases, and an upbeat atmosphere with live music by Blair Taberer.

We will have a separate kids table set up adjacent to the shared long table where a kids menu will be served.


Reservations are essential

The lunch is limited to 220 people so early bookings are essential.

The event is set up on shared long tables, so please let us know when you are a group but booking separately so we can seat you together.

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.


Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm with luxury accommodation ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage to beautifully restored farm labourer cottages. With emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic, rural yet contemporary in character.

Our Wines

Given our exceptional winemaking heritage of almost 300 years, the Boschendal cellar masters meticulously balance rustic tradition and modern innovation to produce classic, fruity wines while upholding the ecological integrity that has become synonymous with our brand.
