Scrumpy Jack’s Farmstall stocks a wide range of items including trout, wines, homemade jams, preserves, cheeses, farm biltong (jerky), delicious honey brittles, as well as honey products and lots of other tasty goodies. Seasonal vegetables are grown organically on the premises and are always used for the fresh salads, served with our selection of light meals; from toasted sandwiches to juicy steak rolls or even 1kg of rump if you are up for the challenge!!!
Families always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and often sit for ages outside just chilling or enjoying a slice of Marelize’s famous honey baked cheesecake with cappuccino or a pot of tea whilst the kids go for a pony ride.
The shop is filled with a large variety of exclusive and unique gifts, as well as T-shirts, souvenirs and children’s toys.
On site is the largest beehive in South Africa, and this is an interesting educational way for both young and old to spend half an hour. One learns about the honeybee and can view these amazing insects as they go about their daily business.
