“’n Boer maak ’n plan!” The Mombergs of Middelvlei on the outskirts of Stellenbosch allow nothing to come between their guests and the fun and enjoyment of a traditional South African “boerebraai”.
Middelvlei has been owned and run by the Momberg family since 1919. As one enters the gates leading to the farm, one is met by the breathtaking vineyard-strewn “amphitheatre” which overlooks the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of the Devon Valley.
This is where one also gets to indulge in the popular “boerebraai” lunch, a unique outdoor barbecue experience. An integral part of our South African heritage, the team at Middelvlei has taken this social event to the next level. Their resident braai expert prepares your chops, boerewors and chicken kebabs to perfection as you sit back, relax and sample the superb Middelvlei wines on offer. The enticing aromas of the homemade potbrood and braaibroodjies give you a sneak peek of what lies ahead for your foodie experience, while Ben Momberg’s homemade pâté and Ouma Annie’s pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Boerebraai experience in a league of its own.
Make the most of the perfect Cape weather and sit outside on the sprawling verandah while admiring the views. On colder days the cozy fireplace inside will add extra warmth. The ample space makes for a safe visit for the entire family with COVID-19 health regulations in place to ensure a memorable experience.
At a cost of R265 per person your “boerebraai” experience includes a starter and main course, and is available to enjoy on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 12pm and 3pm. A low carb and vegetarian option are also available. For a nominal additional charge guests can include another South African classic for dessert – a malva pudding and ice cream, which is guaranteed to end off a perfect outing.
As Middelvlei is first and foremost a family owned establishment, the team strives to cater for all ages, and as such welcomes visitors of all ages. While mom and dad are relaxing, the young ones can play in the sandpit, feed the farm animals, enjoy the open space on the kick-bikes, or braai their own marshmallows. A special kiddie’s meal at R65 per child is available to ensure they are kept happy.
To ensure a truly memorable experience, pre-booking is advised. For groups of 10 or more, Middelvlei’s cosy barn is perfect, and available at no extra charge. Contact the farm on 021 883 2565, email email@example.com or visit www.middelvlei.co.za for bookings or more information.
