“Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.”  Danny Kaye

Its called a slice of Hog Heaven’ and there’s no doubting why!  Farm Sanctuary SA is the registered NPO where the inspiration is born, awakening a brush with the extraordinary for all who wonder through the impressive barn doors. Located in the magnificent Franschhoek Valley of South Africa, expect to be overwhelmed with solitude - this is a sanctuary, after all. Come and meet the farm animals between 11am and 4pm daily (365 days of the year!). Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Kindly note that there are no snacks currently available at the sanctuary (Unless you eat grass and hay!) but stay tuned because ‘OTT’ vegan brunches, art demonstrations and wine-tastings will be introduced by the end of the year!  Cheers to that!

For those seeking an extraordinary lodging experience to remember long after the cows come home, count sheep no further! There are also a number of accommodation options available on the Sanctuary property - including a ‘Stay in the Hay’ designer loft apartment in the barn itself! Please click on the links below to view the options and availability.

Kindly note that Joanne Lefson and Pigcasso do not to painting demonsrations unless an artwork is commissioned.
