Mont Rouge is a working fruit farm nestled between the towering Winterhoek Mountains situated 12 km north of Tulbagh. Our lovely farm, surrounding nature, and friendly staff is the perfect place to create everlasting memories.
This family farm has been in the ownership of the Du Plessis family for three generations. Being hand on from father to son we have been privileged to grow up in these breathtaking surroundings. Hard work and lots of blessings enable us to live full rich lives close to nature and friends. We wish to entertain you with our relaxed Afrikaans farmer hospitality (and don’t forget the food!).
Mont Rouge is cultivated with 45 hectares of fruit orchards. We are producing fresh fruit for the local and export market. Produce includes peaches, nectarines, plums, apples, pears, tomatoes, oranges, and soft citrus. The fruit are handpicked and then sorted in the packing shed on the farm from where it is shipped to the different markets. The farm management team consists out of a father and two sons who are supported by 50 employees. Our lovely wives will be tending to you, our guests.
All trees except the citrus are deciduous, so they lose their leaves in winter after colorful autumns, and with the spring blossoms, fruit in summer, or snow on the mountain peaks; there is always a difference in the scenery with the changing seasons.
You are invited to come and visit us for interesting farm tours, weddings, and conferences at our scenic venue and relaxing gardens, or to stay over in our warm self-catering cottage. This will give you a chance to free your mind, refresh your soul, spent quality time with your loved ones, and give you insight into the local traditions.
Mont Rouge is a jewel of nature and we will be privileged to share this beauty with you and your guests.
