A working dairy farm in the city is not something one would expect to find nowadays. Situated in the heart of Gauteng, in the beautiful village of Irene, the Van der Byl family (now in their fifth generation) have generously welcomed locals and visitors from afar, on to their farm for many years – allowing young and old to enjoy the dairy farm experience without having to leave the city.
With modern times trending towards looking back at what yesteryears were like, it’s no wonder that Irene Farm Shop continues to grow in popularity as more and more people are wanting to return to basic good health.
Those of us who remember our milk being delivered to our doorsteps and how the cream used to rise to the top (causing a fight over who would get to scoop it off to eat!), will love the experience of nostalgia a visit to Irene Farm Shop brings.
