About us

The Farmyard Honey Factory is a Beekeeping business 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. We currently manage about 300 hives in several apiaries around the Boland area. We provide pollination services to fruit and vegetable farmers and produce honey and other hive products.


Our factory and agriprocessing unit is situated on the farm where we extract & bottle honey, process & package other hive products (like beeswax) and manufacture & bottle our own range of handmade body care products – all of which can be purchased at our retail store.
Our shop includes a strictly Halal eatery – HONEY & CHAI – which specialises in Indian cuisine.
