our story

The first farms established at the Cape in the 17th century had to be diverse to survive. The archives show that most farms produced their own wine, planted fruit trees, sowed grains and kept sheep, cattle and chickens. While much of it was for their own subsistence, the unpredictability of the weather, and isolation from the rest of the world, meant that they could spread their risk, and so always had something available when a ship docked in the harbour looking to replenish supplies.

Today most farms focus on a single income stream. Not so at Groot Phesantekraal. The ever-resourceful Brink family has always kept their focus wide including besides wine, grains, cattle, sheep and even game.
