FIELDS OF FYNBOS

On our breathtaking mountainous hillsides and sprawling fields, one can find a variety of rare and indigenous flora all vying for your attention. Maintained in their natural habitat, the Cape fynbos flourish here, and the mountain comes alive with colour when they bloom.

THE VALLEY

Rolling valleys and soft hills make for a beautiful and breathtaking landscape. Looking down upon the Estate from the mountainside, one gets an idea of just how vast the farmland, and how diverse and rich in natural beauty it truly is.

The farm itself is spread out over 1430 hectares of fertile land, with around 70% of this being actively conserved for its outstanding Fynbos biodiversity. A specially commissioned botanical survey has identified several extremely rare species on the IUCN Fynbos Red Data list (which is a list of Fynbos that range from critically endangered to near threatened), found solely at PaardenKloof Estate.

PRESERVATION & CONSERVATION

At PaardenKloof, we strongly believe in preserving the natural heritage of the land and working WITH it, not AGAINST it.

Since the farm is situated in both the Kogelberg and Overberg biospheres, which are both international heritage sites, our goal of preserving this incredible and diverse landscape is paramount. We regard our status as a World Heritage Site and Global Diversity hotspot with great reverence and take pride in preserving this beauty for future generations. We are IPW registered and follow the integrated production of wine guidelines in working the land in a cohesive and non-destructive manner.

Some of the wildlife that call our estate home include grey Reebuck, blue cranes, fish eagles, Cape mountain leopards and porcupines.

OUR OTHER OFFERINGS

Besides fynbos, vineyards, Nguni cattle and sheep, we also produce our very own brand of organic, indigenous honey – all grown, maintained and harvested on site. Jars of this delicious honey can be bought at our farm shop at Ecology Lifestyle Farm on the R43 towards Hermanus.
