Daggaboer Farm Stall in Blue Crane Route Rural, Eastern Cape
Daggaboer Farm Stall is the perfect stop over or outing for those seeking the best farm coffee and gift shop in the Eastern Karoo. The charming and eclectic Farm Stall (Padstal) is only 48 km from Cradock on the N10 and approximately two hours’ drive from Port Elizabeth.
The name itself draws the attention of visitors and the three official theories of how the farm got its name are worth sitting down to listen to. So relax on the stoep with real "moerkoffie", a slice of the best Milktart, Lemon Meringue or Cheese Cake EVER and enjoy the friendly company and the tranquil beauty of the Middle Karoo.
The Farm Stall Restaurant offers food for the hungry as well as visitors with just a sweet tooth and is well known for their fresh Roosterkoek, homemade pies, irresistible quiches and delicious, thirst quenching, home brewed lemonade and ginger beer – “City Cold Drinks recently introduced to the countryside, with foreign names such as Coke, Fanta & Sprite”.
Daggaboer opened its doors in November 2006 and by 2011 was voted the Best Farm Stall in the Country by “Go” Travel Magazine. It is obvious why this honour was bestowed upon this intriguing Farm Stall, not only does it offer wonderful food, but also a vast array of top quality farm stall products with over 50 homemade jams and preserves alone! The shop offers items from delicious treats, sauces, jams and mixes to books, decorations and handmade 1st grade sheepskin slippers – you will be surprised by the huge variety.
But after all is said that can be said, this Farm Stall is no doubt “Number One” because of their quick service, country hospitality, good sense of humour and passion for all that is the Karoo that makes the experience here, worth the stop!
