My brother turned thirty this month, and with the milestone came 3 celebrations. First, a family affair in the park with bubbly and sushi, then a big 80s themed bash for all his friends and finally an intimate family weekend away in the Underberg.
Since the Underberg is about an 8 hour drive from Joburg, we decided to make a road-trip of it and visit some sites along the way. We stopped in the Midlands and discovered the most delicious handmade artisan chocolates at Chocolate Heaven. Bergamoth infused, chilli and granadilla pods, vanilla bean coconut clusters and ginger bites were just some of the flavours we chose - just delicious!
Just outside the town of Underberg, Pucketty Farm sells free range eggs, farm fresh bread, a selection of pickles, home-made produce and and selection of trout products. Unpretentious and old world, the farm animals roam around and there is even an 'honesty' paying system - and definitely some of the best bread we've ever had!
Some other places we visited again this time around and I have blogged about before are the Nottingham Road Brewing Company and the best Biltong shop at the Mooiriver offramp, read about them here: http://lekkerbeksa.blogspot.com/2011/01/beer-biltong-in-midlands.html
