This month we visit a number of farms in the Breede Valley – an area we have not explored for some years. The farms we will be visiting include Eensgevonden, that was built in the early 1700s on the slopes of Sidouberg and is one of the oldest surviving homesteads in the valley; De Breede Estate Hartebeest Rivier Opstal; Bosjemans Valley, that was restored by Gawie & Gwen Fagan; Wilgevlei and Hervat.
This promises to be an exciting and very informative outing.
The outing has been organised by Celeste Scholz Burger, a Vernac member who now resides in the area, hence this ‘insider’ visit!
