Hillbilly Farm is nestled in the Breede River Valley,  on the R43,  at the foot of the Mostertshoek mountains. We are sure to be an unforgettable visit, and only 90 mins away from Cape Town CBD. Our small working farm boasts the best of all worlds - with our free-range farm animals right on the edge of a mountain wilderness... Our fully licensed farmstall also makes delicious burgers and pizzas,  and we sell ice cold craft beers - unhindered by loadshedding...

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 sometimes 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, 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 (the free-range animals and wildlife make it quite challenging), and we have had success with our chillies! You will find some of our awesome chilli sauces in our farmstall. We suggest pairing them with one of our delicious burgers or pizzas, and an ice cold craft beer (yes - even during loadshedding).

One day we hope to make Hillbilly Farm a self - sustainable property, through agriculture and accommodation, food and beverages, 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. Your support will help us achieve this!

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.


At Hillbilly Farm, we offer guests a unique experience, in being surrounded by free-range farm animals, on a working farm. Our farm accommodation is rustic, but it offers all the basics you would need for a self-catering stay.  You also shouldn’t notice load-shedding here, with gas showers and other equipment in place for convenience.

Outdoors people and animal lovers love it here, and don’t want to leave.  The self-catering accommodation is available in wooden wendies, namely the Bunker which sleeps up to six people, the Roost which sleeps up to four people, and the Cow Shed which also sleeps up to four people.  There is a short walk to the ablutions and galley. Facilities are rustic and basic – we are not a hotel or resort, and we are not called Hillbilly Farm for nothing!


Some of our reviews to date:

Fantasties! As die stadslewe te veel raak, dan is Hillbilly Farm net die regte plek om by te kuier! Diere, berge en natuur op sy beste. Die kinders het dit baie geniet. Daar is baie plaasdiere en ‘n mens raak weer een met die natuur. Ons sal dit enige tyd aanbeveel.

Within its price range, Hillbilly Farm is certainly the best accommodation you will find. Although not luxurious, we stayed in a clean room with all the necessary amenities. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We walked up the mountain (on the Hillbilly premises) to watch the sunset and braaied afterwards, both of which we enjoyed very much. I would certainly recommend Hillbilly Farm.

Was ‘n fantastiese en unieke ervaring. Om tussen die eende en hoenders te bly was ‘n belewenis. Ons kamer was pragtig en ruim. Die buitestort en toilet het iets nostalgies daaraan gehad. Ek sal verseker Hillbilly Farm aanbeveel en sal definitief weer daar gaan bly!

Pure plaas. Het baie lekker gekuier. Eienaars baie vriendellik en hulpvaardig.

Tanith en Steven was baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik en die kinders het dit baie geniet. Lekker plek vir kinders en vriende om saam te gaan. Daar is baie om te doen op die plaas en in die omgewing. Dit was baie gerieflik om kos by die padstal te koop. Kamers was netjies en goed toegerus.

Ek dink ek het dalk nie veel verwag omdat die prys so billik was, maar te same met ‘n baie gemaklike verblyf, het die eienaars ons ook baie lekker tuis laat voel. Die plasing van die verblyf was ook baie maklik om te vind en die padstalletjie het als wat ons benodig het (en meer) verskaf.

Rustic, maar lekker. Hillbilly farm is ‘n baie unieke verblyfbestemming, met ganse, hoenders, honde, beeste en bokke wat oral op die erf doenig is. As jy dol is oor jou luukshede dan is dit dalk nie vir jou nie, maar as jy die plaas- en buitelewe geniet sal jy jou verblyf baie geniet hier. Definitief ‘n besoek werd! PS: Vra vir die Chilli Vodka.

Dit was baie verrassend aangenaam. Die plek is iets anders. Baie gerieflik reg langs die pad Ceres toe. Hulle het regtig moeite gedoen om dit nie ‘n vyf-ster hotel te maak nie. Selfs die toilette, stort, en kombuis is buite. Daar is diere om te sien en selfs die hoenderhaan het ons 5 uur wakker gemaak. Vir iemand wat iets buitengewoon soek is die plek aan te beveel.

Steven, Tanith en 5 viervoet kinders het ons dadelik tuis laat voel. Om in die natuur te wees omring deur die plaasdiere is so asemrowende gevoel. Ons het so ontspanne gevoel en het te lekker gekuier saam met Steven en Tanith. Hul laat jou dood familie in plaas van ‘n gas voel. Sal beslis weer en weer gaan kuier.

Farm Stall

FARMSTALL HOURS – Thursday – Monday   10am – 5pm (and a bit later on Friday nights…)

Our little farmstall offers regular items such as coffee, cooldrink, various perishables, preserves, pickles etc. There is an assortment of delectable goodies to choose from, and a beautiful spot underneath the trees where you can go enjoy your picnic platter of your own making. We have local braaivleis and ice in the freezer. Cheeses, salami and more in the fridges. And our home-made range of chilli sauces are available for sale on the shelves. Fresh produce grown on the farm is also available (seasonal, of course…).

We are fully licensed, stock some refreshing local craft beers, ciders and gins, and serve delicious burgers and pizzas.

Windmills are an iconic South African symbol and we hand-make gorgeous windmills, in all colours and sizes. There are also wind-flowers, windmill themed lamps, clocks and more. We are constantly developing, and offering new and unique items; from ‘sparkies’ to dramatic lamps made from old motorbike parts.

We stock a range of Nguni hides and craft other leatherwork.

While visiting, you may see our free-range Nguni cows,  and probably chickens, or just watch the farm-fairies (malachite and red-collared sunbirds, cape robins, batis’s and even paradise fly-catchers) flit amongst the bushes.

S.W.A.T. Laser Tag

S.W.A.T. Laser Tag Games is a make-believe combat game, that can be enjoyed by all members of the family, from six years to 'Oupa' years old. Lasertag is great entertainment for kiddies parties, bachelor parties, staff events, or just some family fun. The games are safe and easy to play – no vests, goggles or helmets required, just a good attitude, and probably sunblock.
The Laser Tag games take place outdoors at Hillbilly Farm, on a grassy pasture next to the Hillbilly Farmstall, situated in Wolseley, about 30 km's from Worcester, and 10km's from Ceres.

The Lasertag party lasts two hours, with a few breaks in between, for drinks or cake etc. During the breaks, there is a little zip-line, swings, a slide, swing-ball, or just some more grassy space for everyone to entertain themselves.

The farmstall sells cooldrinks, makes great burgers, and is fully licenced, so there are refreshments available for everyone. Moms are more than welcome to bring their own cake and goodies, or we can arrange kiddies burgers etc. (Note - no alcohol may be brought onto the premises).

Bookings are essential (minimum 48hrs notice). Rates are R150 pp for 2hrs (minimum 10 players – maximum 22).
