Goatshed Farm Table at Fairview Wine and Cheese

1 & 2 December and 8 & 9 December 2018 from 11:00-15:00

Following the success and great response of our Cheesy Saturdays in October, we’ve decided to kick start summer by upgrading the concept to become our Goatshed Farm Table!

From Sunday 11th November until 9th December 2018, our Goatshed Restaurant will offer a veritable smorgasbord of Fairview delights. What this means is that we will continue to offer our artisanal cheese offering, but in addition, we’re curated a showcase of our finest products, including a wide selection of hand-made breads, locally crafted preserves and relishes as well as a mouth-wateringly delicious selection of savoury and sweet treats. And all of this at only R150pp!

The best part is that every Goatshed Farm Table will be an ever changing selection of deliciousness, with different treats brought out by our Goatshed team depending on the time of day. That means each event will be a little bit different, and all are encouraged to come and feast more than once. But don’t worry – if you prefer our classic à la carte menu, this will be available as usual and all are welcome.

Tickets are available via Quicket at
