At Spier, food is more than just something to eat – it nourishes our bodies and lifts our spirits. We live by the seasons and listen to the changing needs of our farm’s ecosystem of soil, plants, animals and people.

We grow a lot of our own food in the Spier Food Garden, and for what we can't grow ourselves, we partner with local suppliers who share our values. These suppliers are just as committed as we are to being honest, ethical, and passionate. When it comes to meat, we work with folks like Farmer Angus who understand the importance of taking care of animals and not wasting anything.

We believe that quality ingredients should not be fussed over. Our chefs prefer simple and timeless cooking methods that transcends backgrounds and generations. Whether picnicking on the Werf or sitting down to a curated dining experience at the Manor House, our food comes from diverse chefs inspired by a shared philosophy.

At Spier, food is about life.

Our Farmer

Farmer Angus

Farmer Angus

"I ditched a London-based career in finance to return to South Africa where I grew up. I began farming at Spier in 2008. Inspired by biodynamic principles, I believe in farming as naturally and holistically as possible. Our happy cattle, pigs and hens are all free-roaming in pastures. The meat and eggs are used in the restaurants across the farm."

“Regenerative farming goes beyond sustainability. It means leaving the space in a better state than how you found it, as opposed to simply maintaining the status quo."

Chef Hennie is not a fan of fancy, fussy cooking. “For me, the secret to a great meal is honest, authentic and unpretentious food made with the best quality ingredients.”
