This old-style, storybook dairy farm is a lovely place to spend some time with family. Situated under 100-year-old oak trees in one of the original farm barns, The Barn Restaurant serves sumptuous breakfast and lunch buffets every weekend.
From Monday to Saturday they offer an A la carte Menu and on Sundays they offer a breakfast buffet and a lunch buffet. On public holidays you can have a Chefs Hot Table Breakfast or a Braai Buffet for lunch.
Irene Farm’s dairy shop sells certified raw milk (one of the last places to do so) that is produced right there on the Farm. The old gallon buckets of fresh farm milk are a sight unique to Irene. The Shop also has a wide range of cheeses, cakes, rusks and other fresh fare.
Irene Farm is a full working dairy farm with a herd of 120 Friesland cows that are milked twice a day. They have a special viewing gallery where the children can see the cows being milked, between 2pm and 3:30pm every day.
The farm has two wooden jungle gyms, three “Vaal Jappies” and a tree swing for the little ones to play on, as well as acres of open space for them to run around to their hearts content.
The Irene Farm and dairy shop is open 365 days of the year.
