Spring has sprung in Paarl! You will not want to miss out on the beauty and offerings Paarl has to offer whilst welcoming the change of season. From art classes, events and guided tours to experiencing fabulous tasting options, food, wine and warm hospitality, we invite visitors for the perfect breakaway. Paarl’s outdoor attractions and the scenic nature of our region makes it the ideal spot for nature lovers to visit.
These factors contribute to safe travel choices during the COVID-19 pandemic. The various wine estates, restaurants and tourist attractions have enough space to comfortably allow social distancing, while product owners are highly aware of COVID protocols and promote strict adherence to the guidelines.
Whatever the season, there is always something happening in Babylonstoren’s garden or something new to discover.
They have recently expanded their kitchen garden to accommodate the growing demand for freshly harvested vegetables for their Farm Fresh boxes and their two restaurants. This one-hectare patch named ‘moestuin’ (kitchen garden) has provided their chefs with a seasonal bounty incorporated into the new winter menu at Babel.
In keeping with the typical Cape Dutch building style of the farm, this new garden, situated next to the Succulent House, is surrounded by a white stonewashed wall. Visitors can now stroll among the four sections of the garden, planted with a variety of seasonal vegetables like asparagus, artichokes, rhubarb, rosemary, cabbage crops, fennel, leeks and herbs like coriander and parsley. In preparation for next summer’s pumpkins, big areas have been prepared with lupin, fava beans, peas, grains and wild mustard.
