Event Space

Inspired by our farm, we decided to create a space that we could share with other passionate creatives, chefs and friends. This space, we affectionately call the "The Atrium." It is a beautiful gallery space with double volume windows overlooking our 25 year old liquid amber trees. Massive custom glass barn doors greet you as you enter the Atrium. From there it is a quick walk to our certified organic Pomegranate orchard and food forest. So whether you want to host an event for 30 of your closest friends or curate an inspiring workshop, surrounded by a boutique organic farm, you have arrived at the right place!  

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE SPACE?

Your imagination is your only limitation. We have purposefully kept the Atrium as an open canvas for your event. We have hosted everything from Secret Suppers, to food bloggers, wedding photographers, massive film crews all the way to small brand launches. Below is a list of ideas to get those creative juices flowing:

WORKSHOPS : BRAND ACTIVATIONS : PRIVATE PARTIES : CORPORATE EVENTS : FASHION LAUNCHES : COOKING CLASSES : POP-UP DINNERS : HARVEST TABLES : FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY ... ANYTHING SUPER COOL, CRAZY & FUN

Our farm is run on family rules! Clean up after yourself. Setting up and cleaning up for your shoot or event must be done within the amount of time you have booked. Please book more than your “shoot or event time” to make sure you are in and out on-time. We have multiple bookings on one day so please don't arrive earlier than booked. If your event is running late, additional time can be added to your slot booked if we don't have a booking after you. Overtime is charged at R800 / hour or part thereof. Breakages and cleaning fee is for your account. If the studio is not left as found then a cleaning fee of R500 will be enforced.
