This farm in the Cape Winelands is known for its gourmet restaurant Babel, but those who have visited also know that its Farm Shop is one of the most seductive food and housewares shop in a barn anywhere. You can spot donkeys from the doorway and hear roosters crowing as you browse. Locals and guests of the hotel can buy baked goods and fresh produce, cheeses and meats from the farm, while those headed home on an international flight can stock up on teas, jams and an assortment of glassware, dishes, linens and home scents made from the farm’s lavender. The setting in a historic Cape Dutch farm building and the displays of picnic fixings are as tempting as the meals served in the property’s restaurants.
