Rosemary Hill Activities:
We have been practicing organic farming here for 35 years, and during this time have planted over 50,000 trees and shrubs. We currently grow African Potato, Sutherlandia, Rosemary, Lavender, Artemisia, Lippia, Spearmint, Eucalyptus and various other plants from which we distill essential oils.
Other crops include pecan nuts and vegetables. Our nursery sells a variety of shrubs, herbs, flowers and trees, so if you see something you like and it has a price on it, you can pay at the till and take it home!
We also have sheep, a herd of nguni cattle and numerous small wild animals on the farm. Please remember, this is a working farm which means equipment, tractors, bakkies and people are going about their daily work, please take care and ensure that your children are supervised at all times.
We work in close co-operation with the Max Stibbe Waldorf School situated next door, which was started in Pretoria in 1972 and moved to the farm in 1978. There are currently 240 learners from nursery school to grade 10, of which 65 are boarders and 130 make use of one of the school's eight school buses commuting from Pretoria, Centurion and Bronkhorstspruit.
Rosemary Hill hosts authentic tea parties, specialising in kitchen teas, baby showers, birthdays and special events like christenings. All our treats are made from scratch by our professional pastry chef.
Our events such as weddings and conferences combine a casual farm-feel with top quality event management and delicious home-style cooking. Weddings are booked more than two years in advance, so hurry if you'd like to make an enquiry!
Our 6, 10 and 31 km mountain bike trails are beautifully laid out and very well marked. We offer safe parking, we patrol the trails and the variety of terrain caters for young and old, beginners to advanced. Our toddler trail of 1 km accommodates all the little ones.
