The Farm Stall stocks a broad variety of local produce from teas to honey to freshly baked goods to local wines. Next door you’ll find the Coffee Shop where you can enjoy a light meal or steaming cup of coffee inside or out on the veranda under the shade of the oak trees. Be sure to stop by on your way into the Overberg or on your way back to Cape Town.

Oude Molen Cape Brandy

Along with a number of excellent wine estates and cider houses, Grabouw/Elgin is also home to a brandy distillery, the Oude Molen Distillery.
