This historic farm, set amongst the rugged sandstone cliffs of the Eastern Free State Highlands, is blessed with precise combination of soil and climate, and is set at the precise altitude - landmarked by a solitary rock-needle etched against the skyline known as the Pulpit - required to produce the perfect cherry!
