For a convenient city escape it’s hard to beat the charming village of Irene. Situated near Centurion, between Johannesburg and Pretoria, Irene still has that small country town feel to it. On its doorstep is the historic Irene Dairy Farm.
Foodies love the farm shop for its fresh farm milk, clotted cream and pantry full of jams, bakes and other scrumptious homemade goodies. Upstairs, The Nest is full of desirable homeware. For families with kids, the Irene Dairy Farm is everything you’d expect from an old-style working farm: country-style barns, lush lawns, shady oak trees and, of course, herds of cows.
The kids will love petting the calves, swinging on the jungle gym, or play-riding on the tractor, while mum and dad tuck into a hearty breakfast or lunch at the Deck or Barn restaurants. Both offer al fresco dining and cooling mist sprays to temper Irene’s sultry summers. Interiors are cosy in winter.
The Deck restaurant has gorgeous garden views and fills up fast, so book beforehand or arrive early. The Irene Dairy Farm is ‘cashless’ - meaning you’ll need to pay for meals and other purchases with a debit or credit card.
