We are a small family farm tucked into the rugged, quartz-rich Akkedisberg Mountain range near the sleepy hamlet of Napier in the spectacular Overberg Highlands. We are certified as organic 3rd year in conversion, looking forward to being fully certified organic next year. We don’t use chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Our plants are root-fed with run off from our own earthworm farm, and compost and mulch. We complement this with compost teas that we add systemically, and activate the compost with a concoction of stinging nettles, comfrey, chamomile and yarrow.
enjoy a similar treatment – using straw mulch, we have managed to reduce our water usage by 40% and have significantly suppressed weeds in the vineyard. We never use chemical fertilisers, and we have an agreement with neighbouring farmers not to use chemical sprays on the adjoining lands.
The Drift Farm
is an amazing experience of being close to nature, and I hope that you will join us on our journey as we continue to grow a little piece of heaven in the Overberg. Call us on 0861 502025 or firstname.lastname@example.org
