About us

Petervale Farm is an 89ha organic farm, situated in the Ceres Valley, South Africa and has been in the Roux family for four generations.
The farm itself is extremely fertile and supports many different types of crops. The farm was converted in the year 2000 from a conventional apple and pear farm to a diversified organic farm.

After the conversion, the farm downscaled its pear and apple orchards. The majority of the apples are now used to produce organic apple juice, which is pressed on the farm. We also have an almond orchard, quite a few pear trees, a large vegetable and soft fruit garden.  Petervale also has a small dairy herd, four donkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, an ostrich, beehives, chickens, geese, ducks and a pot-belly pig called Henry.

The farm has a large pine forest situated at the foot of the beautiful skurweberg mountains. There are two large dams which supply all the water for irrigation and a natural spring, which supplies all our households with drinking water. There are several pastures for grazing, with a portion of the farm left uncultivated. This is done to encourage an abundance of wildlife on the farm.

Petervale is the food upon which relaxation feeds! So happy to have discovered this piece of paradise. I am sure we will be returning again and again. This is my number one destination this year! Farm animals, sunset boating, bonfires and laughter. Love it – Love it – Love it!


In two weeks we have been back to Petervale three times. Never have we stayed at a place where the owners are so friendly and helpful, the environment so clean and pure. This is definitely what paradise is made of and we can’t wait to come again!!
Thanks so much to the Petervale team on making this an experience to remember :)

Wow what a fantastic place! The accommodation is perfect and Reuben was incredible. We all enjoyed the animals.Don’t forget to take apples for the horse. The fresh milk and apple juice were delicious. Swimming in the dam was great and the waterfall in the hills is the best I have seen. Can’t wait to take other people there this Christmas.

We stayed over the weekend past and what a great place, a real little gem! So wonderfully peaceful, a very scenic little hike to the waterfall and the animals are real bonus for the kids, especially little Bambi.
We’re already planning our next trip!


My recent long-weekend stay at Petervale was the most relaxing time I’ve had in a long time. What an amazing place, including shady campsites, decent ablutions, a wonderful clean huge lake to swim in, hike to a waterfall, lots of fun farm animals and super-friendly and helpful owners. This place comes highly recommended and I’ll definitely be back for a visit in the very near future. Well done Petervale!


A very belated but truly heartfelt and sincere thank you for the wonderful time that we had at Petervale. The campsite was divine and the atmosphere so peaceful and relaxing. We loved walking down to the farm every morning to feed the animals - it was the highlight for the girls. We will definitely be back and my sister and her family are also keen to come on the next trip. Perhaps next time we will book Tipi 2 as well.

As for the almonds and the apple juice, they were totally delicious. I am saving the last bottle of juice for a special occasion. And we loved the fresh, fresh water. Cape Town water just tastes disgusting after drinking Petervale's... Missing that the most. Missing everything about the farm actually!!
