11:30 – 14:30

After the success of our first ever Harvest Lunch Table last year, this year we will be hosting one Harvest Lunch Table every Saturday during the month of March. This wonderful paddock-to-plate experience is all about bringing the farm’s bountiful produce and fruits of the harvest directly to the table for guests to experience and enjoy in a relaxed al fresco setting.

Guests will be seated at a long table set under a vine canopy where they are encouraged to mingle with those around them over trendy sharing platters prepared and conceptualized by the Goatshed restaurant head chef, SJ Nel.

The menu will feature some of Fairview’s finest artisanal produce, including generous servings of its renowned cheeses, breads, olives, charcuterie and homemade preserves. In the spirit of the bounty of the harvest, guests will be able to help themselves to a bottomless supply of Fairview Sauvignon Blanc!

Each Harvest Table Lunch is capped at 70 guests, so get your tickets soon to secure your seat.
