The slow life is the good life: go! Platteland celebrates the rural lifestyle and the entrepreneurial spirit of the people whose hearts are in the platteland – whether they grew up in the platteland, are based there already, planning a move or are simply hankering after a life in the country. We focus on entrepreneurs, DIY, animals, gardening, food, towns and people.
What can readers look forward to in the Autumn Platteland? We look at life in Cullinan just east of Pretoria, as well as experience the less showy side of the Eastern Free State; visit a couple who left behind the rat race of the Midrand for a more fulfilling life on a farm outside Magaliesburg; and find out how a mother-and-daughter team from the Eastern Cape expanded their modest Nanaga Farm Stall in the Eastern Cape into the pie “mall” it is today.
But that’s not all. We also tell readers how they can make their own wine at home; choose the right guard dog; plant a tree; cook up a storm with olives and figs; and knock together an owl box. Then there are the nostalgic reads: Herman Lategan writes about the train trip he frequently took as a child to visit his mother in Lutzville, and author Riana Scheepers shows her favourite vista on her farm outside Wellington.
