About The Honey Shed
We are a working farm situated beneath the majestic Tsitsikamma Mountains in the Garden Route, Eastern Cape of South Africa. On the farm we have “The Honey Shed” Accommodation, the Country Kitchen and the Nursery. Our ethos is holistic green living (including recycling of all waste). We propagate indigenous plants for vegetation restoration work and other projects.
This is a small piece of paradise and we welcome your visit.

One bedroom with a double bed and a large living area includes a huge wrought iron sleeper bed which can sleep 2. Shower and separate WC.
The kitchen is large and fully equipped for self-catering. Farm Style breakfasts can be arranged.

In the dining area we have an “honesty shop”, where you can select from our range of farm made preserves and some specially selected arts and crafts. Various ornaments and knickknacks are on display and for purchase in the unit.
The unit is thoughtfully stocked with books, TV with DVD player and a selection of movies and documentaries, iPod player and games for rainy days. A lovely study/desk area if you feel like working or playing on your laptop.
We are conveniently situated to all the Tsitsikamma adventure activities, hikes, beaches and fine dining.
We produce a range of original and unusual preserves for wholesale to farm stalls and delis and for our guests to purchase
- Whisky Marmalade – the best ever
- Brandy Marmalade – Ya, brandewyn
- Ginger, Orange and Lemon Marmalade – unique
- Onion Marmalade – made the old fashioned way
- Peppadew jam – great with cheese especially blue cheese
- Roa’s Chutney – my grandmother Roa’s recipe, can’t be beate
- A range of country mustards including beer, pepper, garlic and chilli and others
- Farm style Pick a Lily – yes Piccalilli, like it used to taste
We make to order. Citrus Marmalades are only made at start of citrus season(winter) therefore orders need to be placed well in advance. Other products are made throughout the year except over the festive season when we are busy with our accommodation. Therefore it helps us if all season orders can be in by latest October. We only accept orders of 12 or more bottles of any one item. Contact Carla directly for a price list and any further information.
The working part of the farm is the Nursery. Rob grows indigenous plants and trees, Proteas and Fynbos. The plants are used in Robs vegetation restoration work, and supplied to retail nurseries. Growing of plants on a contract basis is also undertaken and over the years this nursery has produced millions of plants for various developments. Although it is a wholesale nursery, we do sell to the public. Contact Rob to make an appointment as he is a busy bee.
