Italians gather in gluttonous groups and devour enough carbohydrates to topple a freight train, residents of Buñol Spain paint the town red with cityspanning tomato fights, and the indigenous Jungle Ducks of Peru roast peanuts over a fire and perform tribal dances. If Jungleducking around or tangoing in tomatoes doesn’t appeal, indulge in a truly South African pastime and romance your innerfarmer with today’s Groupon Pay R799 for a handson harvest experience, including lunch and one night’s accommodation for one person, valued at R1900 Pay R799 for a beekeeping experience, including lunch and one night’s accommodation for one person, valued at R1700 Pay R250 for a tractor ride and authentic potjiekos meal for one person, valued at R500 Pay R1499 for a handson harvest experience, including lunch and one night’s accommodation for two people, valued at R3800 Pay R1499 for a beekeeping experience, including lunch and one night’s accommodation for two people, valued at R 3400 Pay R500 for a tractor ride and authentic potjiekos meal for two people, valued at R1000 Nestled in the Langeberg Valley like a precious stone, Farmer Redbeard’s selfsustaining fruit and honey farm is a hidden treasure of wildlife, Fynbos, fruit orchards and vineyards. In an effort to share the splendor of his farm and precious produce with the public, Farmer Redbeard is offering you the opportunity to become both a farmhand and a guest for a day while he reveals his secrets to success. Tractor ride into the Langeberg along oxwagon tracks of our ancestors, followed by hearty potjie in the farmhouse. Excellent day outing for family and friends and a real blast from the past. For those who are more handson than feetup, the hands on harvest is the ideal opportunity to experience traditional harvesting methods. Roll up those sleeves and take part in pruning and harvesting fruit from the vines and orchards while spending a glorious morning in the cool and tranquil valley. Once you’re done, enjoy a traditional farmhouse lunch, a sunset wine tasting and a short walk through the vineyards before curling up in the comfort of your farmhouse bed. While the idea of being chased by bees is about as desirable as an ostrichkick to the stomach, the beekeeping workshop is an unforgettable experience. Following a smooth tractor ride to the beehives, you’ll learn how to smoke the bees out in order to remove the honeycomb. Next enjoy a delicious farmhouse lunch followed by a deep sleep in your beefree bed. If picking fruit or battling bees isn’t your cup of tea, pop a piece of straw between your lips and jump on a tractor for a fun ride through the vineyards, fruit orchards and finally, up the Langeberg Mountain. During this time, bend your ears for Farmer Redbeard’s history lesson and don’t forget to look out for birds and Fynbos. Because a tractor ride is known to work up quite the appetite, return from your trek to an authentic potjiekos meal and tuck into your treats around an atmospheric bush fire. The good fact Back when cell phones were the size of bricks, a wine farmer created a wine called Futurista. He said it was inspired by a dream he had of a 43 inch plasma TV.
