We have been trying to compose this post in our heads for a couple days now: Luke and myself have decided to say farewell to the farm in May/June. This is something that we have been reflecting on for some time now, a decision that tugs at every heartstring. It is time for someone else to take over the reigns at De Meye. The little business that was handed over to us six years ago has given us so much in terms of growth and experience 🌱 and our success would not have been possible without the support of our customers, and for that we are so very thankful ✨ If you think you or anyone you know might be interested in operating a restaurant on a picturesque wine estate, please contact us via the email link in our profile.

Run by passionate husband-and-wife team Jess Shepherd and her husband Luke Grant, the restaurant has become a well-loved gem in the heart of the Winelands. The duo took to Instagram to announce the news: “Luke and myself have decided to say farewell to the farm in May/June. This is something that we have been reflecting on for some time now, a decision that tugs at every heartstring. It is time for someone else to take over the reigns at De Meye,” reads the post. The pair will be stepping away from the restaurant and new management or ownership is still to be determined.

The Table at De Meye has been a firm favourite in the Stellenbosch region, making the Eat Out 500 a number of times, as well as winning the first-ever Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award in 2016.

What’s next? Jess and Luke are going to see where things take them: “Nothing planned at the moment. [We] will see where the universe takes us. Hoping something will reveal itself; we love what we do,” says the couple.

We wish Jess and Luke all the best; we can’t wait to see what they get up to next!
