Charlesford Farm nestles in the Knysna River Valley bordering 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 polocrosse events at the Old Drift.
Charlesford Farm currently has a Jersey herd of approx. 300 cows in the milking herd and a total herd of approx. 700 on the farm, complemented by a piggery of 50 sows.
The Charlesford Farm Butchery was founded in April 2016, as the newest addition to our farm.
