Our Story


Hedley and Patricia Manicom bought the Owl Rest farm in July 2016 and immediately set to work upon turning the good little business they had bought into a great business. Hedley’s engineering and business background combines well with Patricia’s landscaping and creative design skills and with the support of their small but capable workforce, the farm has become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike and they have a growing customer base across South Africa.

Farming Support

The staff at Owls Rest grew up in the Langeberg valley and have a deep understanding of all that it has to offer. Each member brings their own specific strengths and in their own way is able to contribute towards developing and keeping happy customers whether this is through providing great products, delicious refreshments or a memorable experience at the farm

Manufacturing and sales support

The ladies on our staff are responsible for most of the cooking, preparing and bottling of our products as well as assisting in the shop. Each has good experience with the preparation of the products and serve an important role in providing great products, delicious refreshments and a memorable experience at the farm.
