“Our beef and lamb are bred and naturally reared grazing the fields on farms in KwaZulu Natal. Our free-range chicken is bred and reared in Eston and the Midlands by a small producer with the same business ethics and love for animals as we do.

Get your dose of healthy, grass reared meats from Andy Fenner, a true advocate of the real food movement. “Buying meat is about more than picking up a vacuum-sealed plastic bag. It’s about the farmers. It’s about the animals. And we want you to be part of the process. It’s your right. By working with passionate suppliers (the type who rear healthy, happy animals) we are able to be the step between the farm and your plate.” Andy Fenner

“After ten years of searching, we believe to have found a unique vineyard site, capable of producing truly fine wines with a real sense of place. It is therefore our aim to grow grapes, which are as healthy, balanced and characterful as our natural circumstances will allow. We believe that this can only be achieved by cultivating on a farm that is truly alive and in tune with its natural environment- from the rocky soil in which the vines grow, right the way through the surrounding eco-system.” – Waterkloof
