Dating back to 1984 the restaurant at La Petite Ferme has a story that includes the farm workers building the first structure by hand, a devastating fire and a menu that consisted out of family recipes with some of the classic La Petite Ferme dishes still on the menu. October 2015 brought new ownership and today La Petite Ferme promises each guest an unforgettable experience. Focussing on sourcing the best and freshest in-season ingredients grown locally in the valley for a sustainable menu, expertly cooked and plated in a harmonious, elegant yet satisfying manner. Sourcing food locally promotes the local economy, shortens supply chains and creates seasonal options which guarantees quality and freshness. Locally sourced menu items like the vegetables, mushrooms and trout, to name but a few, all comes from Franschhoek itself. The bread and bakery items are baked fresh daily and even the glassware is made from recycled glass. This all aids in attaining a greener footprint. Freshly picked herbs from our garden like basil, lavender and thyme are also incorporated in selected dishes. It offers all the history and nostalgia you expect to find while blending it with a traditional, but innovative style of cooking to deliver fresh seasonal dishes.
