Peacock Alley Farm near St Francis Bay, South Africa, is an organic, farm-to-table operation established to supply our Peacock Alley restaurant, currently in development, as well as serving the local community. We employ young people from the surrounding community, an area where poverty and unemployment, along with the social ills of crime and substance abuse, are rife.
Not only does this initiative provide much-needed employment and income, but it also trains the youth in agricultural skills and the ability to be self-sustaining, enabling them to feed their families and those around them. Those who have a passion for food also have the opportunity for further training and mentoring in hospitality.
In responding to tough economic times and the impact of climate change, we take our responsibility to empower people and build resilience seriously.
