Kersefontein Honey Farming
Kersefontein honey is harvested from the hives on the banks of the Berg River flowing through Julian Melck's farm. The food for the bees is an exciting combination of wildflowers, which are abundant in the surrounding veld during the West Coast spring, and Euclyptus trees that grow in the estuary of the river. This natural combination of flora results in a marriage of delicate and sweet flavours that gives Kersfontein Honey its unique taste and fragrance.

Elandsfontein
This farm is home to one of the world's most important prehistoric sites. The finds include remains of early humans, stone implements and the fossilized bones of many extinct animal species. The most significant find was the skull of a Neanderthal-type of human dug up in 1953. This is now known as the Saldanha Man.
