A Family Farm in the Overberg

Bruce Jack, Farmer and Chief WinemakerWe farm on the slopes of a wise old mountain in the spectacular Overberg. We believe in leaving the land in a better shape than we found it. Organic practices guide our philosophy, and we farm vegetables, raw honey, mountain olive oil and very special wine, grown in extreme vineyards. We also offer luxurious, self-catering accommodation for visitors to this breathtakingly beautiful corner of the earth.

Stay at The Drift

Located one-and-a-half hour’s drive east of Cape Town, we can accommodate up to twelve people, offering a quiet getaway balanced with plenty of activities for active or adventurous visitors. There's a nature reserve behind us, a large games room and pool, excellent hiking and mountain biking by prior arrangement. The Whale Route is just a stone's throw away.

Our Villa vegetable garden is no exception. It's open to our guests and is always brimming with seasonal organic vegetables.
