Farm

heatlands is a working farm. Since the Parkes family has owned it, Wheatlands has produced its own brandy, made money off the Ostrich boom and lead the way in Merino wool and Angora mohair production. Depending on the time of year of your visit, you might be able to experience a busy shearing session or watch the newborn lambs or kids playing in the lands. Wheatlands not only has domestic (many friendly dogs) and farm animals, it also boasts of natural wildlife such as the Springboks and Kudus who roam the veld and sneak in at night to snack on Kirsten and Di’s flower gardens.
