To celebrate the opening of the garden we are offering four garden tours, two on the 31st of October and two on the 1st of November, led by our bio-friendly horticulturist Megan McCarthy.

Spend time learning some secrets about farming the natural way. We’ll talk about nutrition , rotation, plant companions, insectaries and many other methods for growing vigorous crops without the need for harmful chemicals and sprays.

Anyone interested in growing their own herbs, veggies or fruit will love spending time in this environmentally sensitive space, and can benefit from Megan’s wide knowledge and passion for her craft.  

Limited spaces are available so book soon.

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.


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.

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.
