Farm Animals

At the Fat Mulberry kids (of all ages) get in touch with nature and meet Margie's animals.

Favoros a beautiful spotty appaloosa, River who used to be a racehorse & showjumper, Julia our retired pony, Willow a chestnut horse and Mowca the donkey.

The sheep, Cedric & Isabella.

Theo, the sweetest potbelly pig and Chicken Bone, the most tame and friendly chicken that spends the night in Margie's home.

Everyone is welcome to get involved at feeding time which is a really special experience.

Cheese Farms


We are lucky enough to have four cheese farms in the area.

La Fromagerie @ Jackal’s Hill Fromage is close to Fouriesburg, their turn off on the Fouriesburg - Bethlehem road.

Udder delight on the farm Willowbend which is half way to Bethlehem.

Baris Monger and Noah's are past Clarens, on the road to Bethlehem.

 Baris, close to the tar road & Noah's at the end of a scenic 6 km dust road.

At La Fromagerie you can enjoy artisan cheeses served with a taste of farm life and beautiful views

Udder Delight makes craft cheeses from the milk of their own goats, cows and sheep. The Udder Place is their restuarant  and they also handcraft a range of goat's milk soaps - Cleo's Milch.   

Baris Monger makes goats cheese and has a lovely little restuarant overlooking their bountiful vegetable garden.

 The cheese tasting platter at Noah's Cheese is served at their restuarant and comes with a talk on all  their different jersey milk cheeses.
