This is the second year that we decided to end of Heritage Week with a Sunday picnic & music in the garden.  Thank you to everyone that joined us, I really hope you had a wonderful day and somehow experienced the spirit of South Africa with me.

A special thank you the the Radio Kalahari Orkes for once again joining us and spoiling us with your amazing talents.  

Let's do it ag...

Afro-Boer introduces team member Thabo Shanga - he carries a certain African Heritage with him, and he has had a lot of journey on many small footpaths… The first day I worked a hard shift with Thabo I went to check if he was still alive - knowing how the onslaught of a sudden change of slow to busy-without-end environment in an establishment can annihilate all your senses and thi...

Born and bred Pretoria Dorpsmeisie, my friend of 26 years, an Afro-Boer co-owner, and fellow female “WHAT-A-WOMAN” makes the one thing on National Women’s Day I never have to worry about when she is around…

Malva Pudding… (in my favourite mooi blou kommetjie bak!)

After Giselle - with seriously obvious Dutch Heritage -   matriculated at Afrikaans Hoër Meisieskool, on the open road...

So we must feed the bees!

The days are already much warmer, and slowly we are saying goodbye to Winter.  But the rain will not be here for another few weeks, and the majority of plants and trees have still not started to bloom yet.

So for the bees it has been a long Winter.  

What can you do to help?

1. Head over to the nursery and find some plantlings that is already flowering...

  For me, most of life begins and ends with the celebration of food. These days I must say, adding the odd gin and tonic, or exploring an old vintage cocktail, or a precisely paired wine with the mood of the affair adds a certain depth to most of the celebrations, but nothing, nothing gets past the food…! 

  I am an Afro-Boer. An African Traveller is who I am and what I love...

It’s Saturday morning, the day before Mother’s Day, and the conversation title in my mind is:

I’m getting into the car to start the day at about midnight hoping to remember (although I am sure to be reminded) that Dad is on the farm, Mom is alone at home, work will need a lot of focus, the sisters are waiting for arrangement updates, husband needs an answer on the where we will b...

Interview with Rachelle Cilliers - The Keeper of Books… 

Recently moving in some stock onto the shelves of her new book store, she was called upon in the passing to explain what she is all about!

Wie is Rachelle?

’n “Afgetrede”, ’n vrou en ma met ’n BCom Rek Honeurs, ge-”artikel”, ge-“oudit”, ge-”finansieële” bestuur - opsigself ’n rekenmeester  - dis van hier dan die naam: The Bo...

...ek lees ‘n storie oor ‘n skip wat oppad was om terug te keer huiswaarts. Hulle praat van ‘n ‘homeward bound voyage’. Maar iewers op die Noordsee steek ‘n storm op, en die skip word op rotse gedryf en sink tussen die eilande. Daar was 300 passasiers en bemanningslede aan boord, 32 kanonne, en goedere. Daar was ‘n enkele onbekende oorlewende.

Die skip se naam was ‘Liefde’. 

Op 17...

We’ve got the power!

so I’m standing in my kitchen listening to
the generator humming along, the orders
being called, the buzz outside of the
customers, the washing of the dishes... a
usual Saturday trading, or so it seems...

driving here I notice the tolerance of the
traffic chaos - day seven without
electricity... I also notice the intolerance
at some corners, the impatience whi...
