Farm Story

Working with nature, producing real food and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal’s operational strategy. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded in 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines, and happy memories. Set in the Drakenstein Valley surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes and lush gardens, the original farmstead complex is now a national monument with a rich and intriguing history spanning over 300 years. Today, Boschendal is a Cape winelands icon and an acclaimed wine and food destination. The vineyards and fruit trees have been joined by vegetable gardens and a growing herd of free range, pasture fed Angus cattle reflecting our commitment to serving wholesome farm-to-table food. Making a positive impact on our environment, uplifting our local community, and building a sustainable agricultural farm which can flourish for generations to come is at the core of the Boschenda production philosophy.
