About Us

Weskus Spens is the oldest and arguably the most famous farm stall on the R27. Established as far back as April 1992,Weskus Spens was built and opened by Annemarie and Julian Thom. A lot of research was done before building took place,so as to depict a typical West Coast style. It is situated 10 km before Vredenburg and 20 km before Velddrif.

"Spens" is the Afrikaans word for pantry, which is more or less what you will find produce not unlike those found in your grandma's pantry on the farm.

 On arrival you will be welcomed by the heavenly smell of freshly baked farm bread. The hand-kneaded bread is baked daily and is such a popular favourite that it has even travelled to New York and Dubai!

 Weskus Spens is very well known for their excellent breakfasts and outstanding pies, so make sure you come hungry! A lovely outside garden area with a jungle gym will ensure the kids entertain themselves while you enjoy your meal or browse the shop.

 The shop is a gem of West Coast traditions. Shelves are laden with rustic enamelware and a variety of gifts. Anything homeĀ­ made can be found here, from rusks, biscuits, chutneys, preserves, jams and organic honey and they also stock Simply Bee products and potted plants. Bokkoms (sun-dried fish, a famous West Coast tradition) are always  available!

 This farm stall provides a genuine West Coast experience: visit them once and you are sure to become a regular
