The Farmyard Honey Factory is a small Beekeeping operation situated at the foothills of the Winterhoek Mountains in the Boland region of the Western Cape. It was started by Phirdy Motala as a hobby in 2006 with 6 hives on their 57Ha family-owned fruit farm. A small extraction and processing unit with an adjacent retail store is situated on the farm. Uncapping, extraction and bottling of honey as well as manufacturing and bottling of body care products are done at the factory. The retail store will soon move to a new cosy premises opposite the factory and will include a small eatery.
