The Lismore Farm is old and established, having been in the Barry family since 1844. The farm has an illustrious history and when you’re visiting it can be riveting listening to how it was once used as a horse breeding farm for the Dutch East India Company and other interesting facts.
Today the farm is used for dairy and and you’ll find Jersey cows as well as a Nguni herd. The farm is also a member of the Groot Vaders Bosch conservancy which is wonderful as certain farms see to it that the wildlife of the area is preserved. The area also practices sustainable agriculture production.
What better way to escape the rat race and be part of farm life. There is so much to do too, like fabulous hikes, bird watching, horse riding, swimming, fishing and cycling. Not only that, in the area are wine routes, ostrich farms, hot water springs and other interesting day trips.
