Wolseley Behind the Scenes ~ Hillbilly Farm

#Wolseleyza - A Thousand things to do and then ..

Tell us who you are?

We are Steven and Tanith Matthews & we are Hillbilly Farm. A rustic, small, working farm which is a mixture of wilderness and farming.

What do you offer and what makes you different from the rest?

Our farmstall is so much more than your regular farmstall. It is different and interesting, with a wonderful variety of hand made crafts. We have a selection of goodies to pick & make up your picnic hamper and then you can enjoy a picnic on the lawn under the trees taking in the wonderful surroundings.

We have lovely rustic accommodation as well. Our animals are all free-range. You will hear the occasional clucking of hens laying eggs, watch (or feed) the goats, and even see a nguni calf suckling from its mother.

We also have some beautiful wildlife - birds, agamas, mongooses, baboons etc.

 

Who is your ideal guest?

Our ideal visitor would be a down-to-earth outdoors lover and an animal lover.

What is your favourite feature at Hillbilly Farm?

Observation and inter-action with the animals. .

Name one thing other than your establishment that you would recommend other people to visit/do in Wolseley?

Horse About and Waverley hills wines. And Harvest Table Bistro. Only one??? Would have to be Waverley Hills then.

Wolseley Agrimark puts the swing back

Marlo Lotter, Manager of the Wolseley Agrimark, reported that he was approached by one of their clients, to assist in repairing the swings at the local Malikhanye crèche in Pine Valley, Wolseley.

Without any hesitation, they decided to become involved with the project. They fitted new chains, and built six swings with ordinary motorcar tyres, one with a wooden seat, and a large swing with a tractor tyre.

According to Marlo the project was carried out during the Easter holiday period, and the children were ecstatic on their return when they found that the swings were repaired.

Marlo also thanked Tony Rosendal and the rest of his team for making such a valuable contribution towards the development of the children attending the Malikhanye crèche.
