Today, much of the forests remain and the grasslands are mostly planted with avocado, macadamia and bluegums. The property is usually below the mountain mist yet out of the intense lowveld heat. We do experience very wet conditions in summer.
Dragonwyck Farm is a working farm producing avocados, kiwis and indigenous plants. We practise natural farming methods and as a result have many birds and animals coexisting with us on the farm. We do our best to offer our guests peace and quiet and the opportunity to get the most enjoyment from our environment. Each cottage is surrounded by indigenous plants providing the ideal habitat for many birds and animals. There are walks on the farm which follow the streams and provide access to escarpment forest.
