The farm La Folie, which borders the Spruit River, is situated on the northern slopes of one of Wellington’s beautiful valleys with the Hawequas mountains providing a dramatic backdrop. This farm’s transport act dates back to the 1700’s. The words La Folie, translated from French, means ‘the madness’ and for owners Nico and Anita Breed, their first few years on the farm have proven to be quite crazy. With their lifelong aspiration of living on a farm, it was a dream come true to take ownership of the 30 hectares which constitutes the farm on 31 October 2007.
We still have a long way to go, but the farm La Folie is slowly being developed into a boutique wine and olive farm offering tourism opportunities with our recently launched La Folie green cottage.
We love this farm and we love this land and we love sharing La Folie with you.
“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.” e. e. Cummings
