MyShire Farm

The journey to MyShire will delight your senses...

Situated in the Weltevrede Valley 30 kms from Prins Albert, it is an untarred road taking you through breath taking scenery - past one of the largest fruit production farms in the region, take note of the sign asking you to slow down due to "dust on the fruit trees", then onto the Rooinek pass where you must stop and experience “our valley of 1000 hills” with the multi shades of greys and a dirt road that goes on for ever. Continue onto the T Junction here you will discover Weltevrede Fig Farm which is one of the first fig farms in South Africa, turn right and continue for a further 2 kms you will see the sign MyShire Farm, bare to the right cross over the Lei water sluit. You will reach MyShire gate with a sign that says ‘Please keep the gate closed horses at play’ - cross the Huisrivier sometimes it is flooding so please contact Lisa regarding the condition of the road and river...

Day Trips

Something for everyone...

MyShire Labyrinth is based on the Chartres Cathedral labyrinth in France which dates back to 1201. Walk the magical 11-circuit Medieval Labyrinth surrounded by Mountains and wide open spaces. It is a one kilometre walk to the centre, large enough for our horses, disabled and abled bodied people to enjoy. It is made from the local stone collected from the Huisrivier (we used 4800 stones) The secret of the Labyrinth lies at the centre of the Rose, that you will have to discover and experience for yourself. Allow the silence of the Great Karoo to resonate within you, Experience a moment that lasts a life time.

The Farm comprises of 20 hectares of natural veldt and 10 hectares of pastures for the horses, the Huisrivier runs through the south side of the farm, make yourselves welcome enjoy and discover it all. From Kudu, if you are lucky, to the smallest of indigenous plants. The Karoo violet in early spring creates a carpet of lilac, the horses roam free and will often accompany you on your walks hoping for a carrot or two. At the house meet my animals two Labradors Jabulani and Jackson Brown, seven geese and 7 ducks but no partridge in a pear tree... I feel sure they will all be swimming in the dam next to the house. We have planted winter oats and in the process of planting a seven year grazing crop for the horses; Max a Boerperd - Toffee an Arab cross - Bonnie a Percheron cross Boerperd and Hio an Appaloosa. Relax in the gazebo or on the front veranda and feast your eyes on the verkleurmannetjie the mountain that looks like a chameleon the other name it is given by the locals is the Trapsuutjie loosely translated “to walk softly”. Then look for the sleeping giant in the distant mountains...
