About Belmont Farm
Four words describe Belmont perfectly.... 'A PIECE OF HEAVEN'
The road to Belmont has a beauty of its own as it takes you through the valley to what is a true treasure hiding in the mountains. Something old, something new and definitely, something blue can all be found in Ria Moolman’s farm garden. Ria is an ardent rose grower and masses colour in blocks, and her magnificent cycads (all registered) are a special feature. Her generous, exuberant spirit manifests itself in her colour filled garden with bold splashes of sunlight piercing the fresh mountain air.
Ria loves her lifestyle and where she lives and says:
“For us here at Belmont it is not only about the garden, there is so much more… we live a very isolated lifestyle relying on a generator, solar and wind power and when we want hot water we make a fire in the ‘donkey’; you can see all of this in action when you come to Belmont. I also make use of many natural elements in my garden such as river pebbles, stones from the mountains etc. keeping the garden in tune with the surrounding area. In addition, we make use of spring water for most of our needs. We see it as an absolute privilege to live here”
Teas and refreshments are available. You are welcome to bring your own picnic.
There are plants for sale.
Entry fee: R20pp.
