Hillbilly farm is nestled in the Breede River Valley, on the R43, at the foot of Mostertshoek Mountain, only 90 minutes from Cape Town CBD. Hillbilly Farm is sure to be an unforgettable visit. Our small working farm holds the best of both worlds - a yin and yang mixture of free-range farming with the mountain wilderness.
The majority of the property is rugged koppies, which stretch into the Mostertshoek mountain range. The terrain is home to baboons, dassies, mongooses, genet and a host of birds such as spurfowl, guinea fowl, Black (Verreaux's) Eagles, Jackal Buzzard, Cape Eagle owls, gymnogenes and more. You can often hear the enthralling cry of fish eagles soaring over the valley. The mountains are even home to leopard and caracal (although none have been seen here).
Down on the arable land, we are breeding Nguni cows, goats, chickens and hopefully one day the geese will be a bit more useful than just security... We are trying our hand at various crops and fruit trees, and so far we aren't doing too badly...
We hope to make it a self - sustainable property, through agriculture and accommodation, as well as delving into some arts and crafts, which we make right here with our farm equipment – like amazing windmills in all shapes and sizes, upcycled odds, lamps, hides, clocks, leather work and more.
We offer rustic accommodation.
Visit our Farm Stall for fresh farm produce, local crafts, Nguni hides and more.
Hillbilly Farm is only 10km from Ceres, and 9km from Wolseley.
