ABOUT US The original farm Alewynspoort was made up of a number of erven dating back to the part of the early development period of Johannesburg after the Anglo Boer War. A manor house was built halfway up the rocky outcrop of the poort that was well-known for the wild Aloes that grew there from which the name Alewynspoort was derived. In 2014 the Art Farm was established in this historic area. VISION Our vision is to create a place where our love for art, music, food, wine and sports could offer a unique experience to inspire our guests. To create a place where everything is about art. MISSION Our mission is to accomplish an idyllic environment where peace reigns. A place where the art of food, the art of wine making and visual arts meet. A place where the written word is celebrated and where nature soothes the soul. A place where music and children’s laughter create the perfect ambiance for a relaxing long lazy afternoon experience.
