The Loxtons quickly realised stressed city-dwellers come to their farm both to rest and to experience the environment itself. It’s driven out of nostalgia, says Nikki. “The have fond memories of a father or grandfather’s farm that is no longer in the family and they hope to give their own children similar times.”
“In Koringberg it’s not about what we have – it’s about what we don’t have: petrol pumps, traffic, busy shops, banks, noisy vehicles and car guards. What we do have, is open farm roads and wheat fields. We enjoy the stars and a lekker South African braai.” Maryke Roberts found the invitation from Vleidam Guestfarm in the Swartland irresistible.
