The Groot Plaasproe – from goat to beer!


Do you yearn for the farm life and delicious farm food? You are not the only one! The Groot Plaasproe on Sandringham Estate outside Stellenbosch is where lovers of traditional delicacies can enjoy roosterkoek, game meat, skaapstertjies, wine and more, over three days from Thursday to Saturday, 11-13 October 2018.

Food lovers can taste and buy unique combinations such as Bok&Bier (boergoat meat and craft beer), as well as popular treats such as Karoo lamb sosaties, Wagyu hamburgers and artisan ice-cream. And if you think you might be the Cape’s Braaibroodjiekoning, make sure to enter the The Braai Crew’s braaibroodjie competition!

The Groot Plaasproe offers an experience of all things farm: Meet more than 300 different animals, watch sheepdogs at work, and learn how wool is spun and cows are milked. Kids can lead a milk goat around, ride ponies and play with miniature horses and donkeys.

The festival takes place daily from 08:00 to 18:00. Tickets can be bought from Computicket and the gate at R100 for adults, and R30 for scholars (free for scholars on Thursday and Friday). Entrance is free for children under six years. Pensioners pay only R50 on Thursday and Friday.
