Foxenburg Estate is situated on the spectacular northern slopes of the Groenberg Mountain just 15 minutes from the center of Wellington in the Western Cape.
Foxenburg Estate has been recognised as a priority biodiversity site in the cape Floristic region and has become a committed partner with Cape Nature in their stewardship program.
We are also a member of the Renosterveld conservancy which is the largest remaining intact piece of Renosterveld left in the Western Cape.
We have four self catering cottages on the property which can accomodate a maximum of 20 guests. They are fully equipped with bedding, towels, cutlery and crockery.
Children of all ages are welcome.
We are farming with natural organic methods and are proud producers of goats milk cheese, certified organic extra virgin Olive Oil, olives and Oyster Mushrooms all of which our guests can experience and purchase on the farm.
To our resident guests we offer guided tours around the farm and of the milking parlour during 7am to 9am and offer cheese and olive tastings on request.
