It’s going to be all-out feasting at Boschendal Farm on Heritage weekend with activities to entertain the whole family.
On Heritage Day, Thursday 24 September 2015, 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 on the Boschendal Estate.
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.
The more energetic can sign up for Ride and Roast, which includes a mountain-bike trail in the morning of Heritage Day, followed by the lunchtime ox feast.
On Saturday 26 September guests are invited to spend the afternoon (from 12h30) on the lawns at the Olive Press, with live music by the Jesse Jordan Band. Tickets are R200 per adult, R175 for 12- to 18-year-olds, and free for under 12s. The ticket price includes coupons worth R150 to be exchanged for farm-fresh eats from the stalls and wine, bubbly, beer, juices and cold drinks. Guests are welcome to bring blankets or fold-up chairs. No BYO food and drinks.
Once again there will be an additional activity for the adventurous guests earlier that day. The Run and Rock package includes a trail run on Boschendal Farm before the afternoon’s music event. The Ride and Roast and Run and Rock packages can be booked at www.iqela-events.co.za.
On Saturday and Sunday, Boschendal is participating in Franschhoek Uncorked, offering wine tastings, gourmet burgers, hot dogs and live music by Palm Strings at the Cellar Door Tasting Centre.
Make sure you plan to spend time at Boschendal this Heritage Day weekend, and don’t miss out on all the activities.
Boschendal is also offering low-season rates at the estate’s luxury cottages for visitors wishing to stay overnight. Visit www.boschendal.co.za for more information.
