"Aalwyn" is the Afrikaans word for Aloe Vera; a plant that has numerous cosmetic and medicinal uses and that also graces the many untouched landscapes of South Africa. In addition, this versatile succulent is used to make delicious juice. So, it is no wonder that the Aalwyn Farm Stall is so popular amongst locals and visitors alike.
It is situated between the Ohrigstad River and the koppies of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, along the twists and turns of the R36 motorway. This is around the Blyde River Canyon, in the heart of the Panorama Route, making it a visual masterpiece for those that appreciate the natural splendour of the countryside of South Africa.
The Aalwyn Farm Stall displays rustic shelves with row after row of homemade preserves, delicious jams and tasty chillies. In addition, there are take-away pancakes, jaffles, vetkoek and koeksisters on Sundays for a sample of local flavours. Many of the goodies on sale here have been made by local pensioners, who spend their spare time making delicious treats for tourists, and helping to support themselves financially.
The little nursery is brimming with aloes and other succulents, as well as a section for farming and gardening implements. Those who enjoy spending time in their gardens will be rewarded for their visit to this well-stocked farm stall.
