Situated in the fertile Elgin valley, just past Grabouw, and first established way back in 1964, the ever popular Peregrine Farm Stall is somewhat of a mainstay when it comes to farm stall stops along the N2!
But this is no tired looking old farm stall any more mind you.
Following a devastating fire in 2014, Peregrine Farm Stall has rebuilt itself with a new focused identity (previously the cafe section was known as the Red Tractor Cafe), making for a fresh, delightful stop just before you tackle the scenic Sir Lowry’s Pass on your way down to Cape Town.
In addition to the classic farm stall, the freshly baked pies and breads from the bakery, and the newly rebuilt, modern cafe, Peregrine Farm Stall have also gone and expanded by erecting the beautiful little Padkos Express food bar, which now overlooks the also expanded children’s play area.
The play area is now dotted with old tractors, swings and jungle gym equipment, with the whole area being circled by beautiful little wooden pop-up shop boxes – making for a great family stop spot if you have small kids like I do.
As you may have guessed, the girls loved clambering all over the old tractor shells, while I made myself comfortable with a nice hot coffee and springbok pie!
Also, a nice bonus is the newly added Everson’s Cider Tasting Room which offers cider tasting from nearby produced (and quite frankly excellent) Everson’s range.
So yes, no wonder then that the newly refreshed Peregrine Farm Stall stop remains being as popular with both locals and travelers as what it is!
They’ve been here since 1964, but just in case you still don’t know where to find them, here’s a handy Google map:
(Of course, if you are looking for something a little more ‘adult’ in terms of experience, then you could always just pop into the gorgeous Pool Room at Oak Valley Estate just down the road!)
