About us

Charlesford is in the Knysna River Valley boardering on Phantom Pass. Phantom Pass gets its name from The Legend Of The Phantom Moth.

Charlesford Farm was founded prior to WW2 by Gwen Devenish as a 340ha dairy farm with Jersey cows and 75ha (22%) arable land. Gwen also bred racehorses and Derbyshire had gravel quarry rights on Charlesford Farm. She ran a horse livery yard and riding school from the farm and held regular polo crosse events at the Old Drift.

Charlesford Farm currently has a Jersey herd of approx. 300 cows in the milk and a total herd of approx. 700, complemented by a piggery of 50 sows.
