Established in 1855, Sir Robert Stanford Estate is situated on the southern slopes of the Klein River Mountains overlooking the peaceful village of Stanford.
This 164ha estate is member of the Klein River Conservancy with more than 200 species of fynbos under conservation, mostly consisting of Overberg Sandstone Fynbos and some Elim Ferricrete Fynbos.
Since 2003, indigenous trees have been planted and 32ha have been cleared of alien vegetation. Access to fynbos areas is also strictly controlled to prevent fynbos harvesting, and quarries are being rehabilitated where sand mining once took place.
Biological farming methods are used, such as turkeys that are kept for snail control, yearly planting of cover crops, as well as making their own compost and mulch.
Visitors can stroll through the vineyards or enjoy a tractor ride to experience nature up close.
A delightful country style restaurant, Madre’s Kitchen, uses only free range meats from the Overberg and local produce, keeping the food miles as low as possible.
Thurs – Mon: 08h00 for breakfast and lunch
Wine shop and fresh produce stall at entrance gate daily.
Thurs – Sun: 08h00 to 16h00
