White Water Farm
- The ambiance of the farm is relaxed modern country
. This picture-perfect and historical venue is the ideal place to escape - whether it is for a much-needed rest, an adventure, a business conference, a wedding or a private retreat.
The owners live permanently on the farm, raise their own cattle and have a 2400 sqm organic vegetable garden. All other provisions are sourced locally and we will be proud to offer a menu of delicious dishes cooked by our chef.
White Water Farm has its own chapel which was converted from the old distillery barn, where Witblits (a local liquor like Grappa) used to be made, hence the historic farm`s name - Witwater or White Water. Adjacent is the restaurant with a lovely shaded garden situated under a grove of oak trees and blue gums, making it an ideal venue for weddings and conferences.
The Garden Grill:
Our seasonal restaurant, The Garden Grill, is open for dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday, serving fresh local food in a Mediterranean grill style on sharing platters.
We look forward to welcoming you to White Water Farm and providing you with tranquil Stanford accommodation set in spectacular countryside.
