Turn­ing a new leaf

Fresh be­gin­nings on the Werf

Eight To Go

Eight to Go has moved into the Old Kitchen over­look­ing the Werf.

Here you can cre­ate your own pic­nic from a se­lec­tion of cold cuts, cheeses, sal­ads, breads, dips and sweet treats.

Or you can pick up your pre-booked pic­nic before walk­ing the dozen steps or so to the Werf's rolling lawns where you can spread out a blan­ket and tuck in.

Once you're done, pop in again to stock up on pantry-fillers such as olive oil, pesto, el­der­flower cor­dial, vine­gars and flavoured salts.

Also be sure to stock up on Chef Dec­ima's range of jams and pre­serves.

These are made with herbs, fruits and veg­eta­bles picked from the Werf's Food Gar­den where they're grown with­out us­ing pes­ti­cides or ar­ti­fi­cial fer­tiliser.

The range con­stantly changes de­pend­ing on what's in sea­son – re­cent favourites in­clude green wa­ter­melon pre­serve, straw­berry and rose pe­tal jam and le­mon cur­ried pick­les. Book your bas­ket at www.spier­pic­nics.co.za As the an­cient oaks put on a fresh coat of green leaves and the south­easter be­gins to blow away win­ter's cob­webs, it can only mean one thing: spring has ar­rived at Spier! It's fit­ting that dur­ing this sea­son of fresh starts and new be­gin­nings, change is stir­ring on the Spier Werf. Af­ter be­ing sen­si­tively re­stored, the his­toric farm­yard be­came home to a bunch of new projects help­ing to once more make the Werf a hub of farm ac­tiv­ity.
