Our Story

The Purple Windmill

We bought Uitspan Farm about 4 years ago.  We had challenges during the first 2 years upgrading and developing the farm.

We decided to open 2 venues. A restaurant, The Reservoir, and the wedding venue, The Cellar which is perfect for a wedding with a vintage feel and a modern twist.

It is a fully operating farm with Vineyards, Lemons and Rooibos Tea, as well as Roll on Lawn. Rooibos tea is also a first in this area.

For our wedding, The Cellar was perfect. I was able to create the setting just as I wanted using this stunning venue. It’s spacious, no tight spaces between the seats and the dance floor is big enough for a lekker sokkie. They were willing to go the extra mile and even provided an amazing lamb shank our guests still rave about. Good quality wine and overall, great help from the owners. Thank you.
