Do you yearn for the farm life and delicious farm food?
You are not the only one! The Groot Plaasproe on Sandringham outside Stellenbosch is where lovers of traditional delicacies can enjoy roosterkoek, game meat, skaapstertjies, wine and more, over three days from Thursday 11 to Saturday 13 October 2018.
Food at Die Groot Plaasproe
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 Braai Crew’s braaibroodjie competition!
What can you expect
The Groot Plaasproe offers a taste 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.
On Saturday 13 October big and small can participate in boeresport and an ice-cream eating competition, sokkie and langarm (dance) to the tunes of popular artists Die Broers and Wynand and Chereé, or learn to line dance together with a group of 250 line dancers and music by Die Wildberries.
