The forum’s Farm to Table alfresco lunch has become a favourite on the Jozi foodie calendar. The last one for the year will be festive and full of cheer and a splendid way to celebrate with loved ones before everyone heads off on the holidays.
Just outside of Joburg – on the cycle route towards The Cradle for biking enthusiasts – is a little gem that is ideal for people who love the outdoors… and the good life. Families can take in the glorious weather as they enjoy a farm-style buffet lunch under the trees. All of the ingredients are organic where possible, locally sourced and made with love. Kiddies will be feasting on the buffet and we are offering horse rides to keep them entertained. Booking is essential.
