Over the last 18 months, an old horse paddock at Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch has been transformed into a thriving food garden containing fruits, herbs, salad greens and vegetables — all cultivated using eco-friendly and regenerative techniques.

The garden’s nutrient-rich produce is used in Spier’s restaurants and can be purchased online and from the Spier Farm Café. Visitors are also able to harvest their own produce directly from the garden.

One of South Africa’s oldest wine farms and a well-known Western Cape landmark, Spier hosts the Light Art exhibition as one of their Growing for Good initiatives, which empowers communities to create positive social and environmental change.

A long-standing supporter of the arts, Spier understands that creative works entertain, inform and educate, and this why they contribute to several annual public arts initiatives, and exhibit a significant contemporary arts collection on the farm.

The Spier Food Garden is open daily to visitors from 9am to sunset.
