Pictures: Babyl’s beautiful bounty

Comment on this story
  1. The original whitewashed farmhouse at Babylonstoren is still standing.
  2. Babylon store where they sell items made on the farm.
  3. The original garden is based on a design by Dutch settlers.
  4. They make their own biltong on the farm in this unusual room.
  5. Some of the trees on the property are surounded by cloth in Cape Dutch mosaic designs.
  6. I loved the reasons the current owner, farmer, chef and lover of organic food and nature Miranda Engelbrecht gives for why she bought it.
