We are a christian family. We home schooled our seven children, and raised them on the land, doing the things that our grandparents did.
Now most our children have left home, and we would like to give others the opportunity to experience this lifestyle. We have lived a frugal and rich life, with countless testimonies of God’s great provision and faithfulness.
We have paid our “school-fees” and we can impart valuable hands-on experience to anyone interested in homesteading.
Life on Bethany farm.
We milk our own cows – by hand – make our own cheese, grow our own veggies and fruit, make butter, bread, country wine, eggs etc. Our place is simple and not manicured; we are off the grid – running on solar panels, (so there is no 220 power around the clock, but from early morning till sunset) cooking on a gas stove, gas geyser, and refrigeration, also gas. Solar lights 24/7.
We offer a simple and comfortable sandstone cottage, where you can enjoy the quiet and wake up to the sounds of birds and cocks crowing. For those who love simplicity, unfettered nature, birds, plants and soil, permaculture and trees, I think you will enjoy your stay with us.
We offer a short farm tour as well.
If you pass by on the R62, we’re 3.5 km from the Tweeriviere turnoff. Be ready to exchange lots of info for those interested in natural farming.
We have a selection of unique and wholesome products that come straight off our farm.
