Franschhoek Wine Valley

Feast with Boschendal Farm on Heritage Weekend

It’s all out feasting at Boschendal Farm this Heritage weekend with activities to entertain the whole family.

On Heritage Day, Thursday, 24 September, up to 200 guests will sit down to an Ox-on-a-Spit, platters heaped with seasonal produce, great wine and live music by local band Slow Jack, all at a long table running the length of the historic Werf. Executive Chef Christiaan Campbell and his team are joining in the “Braai Day” fun with this nose-to-tail menu which makes full use of the farm’s own pasture fed Black Angus cattle, carefully dry aged to perfection.  The cost is R295 for adults and R85 for kids under 12.
