Boschendal Diaries: The Faces Behind The Counters Of The Boschendal Farm Shop

Farm-fresh fare with fun & flair: Meet the faces behind the counters of the Boschendal Farm Shop

The Boschendal Farm Shop is one of the busiest destinations on our estate, and with good reason! Since opening its doors in the midst of lockdown last year, it has grown to become one of the foremost suppliers of farm-fresh fare in the Stellenbosch area.

The really great thing about shopping at our store is the fact that there are such friendly faces behind the counters. This includes Ralton Adams, Tracey Muponda, and Thozama Thembani.

Farm Shop Manager Ralton Adams has been working at Boschendal since 2014, and actually started out as tasting room manager. He has a strong background in wine and food tourism, having worked at Grande Provence and Blaauwklippen previously. Ralton loves food and wine and was very excited to get involved with the Farm Shop, which provided a whole new set of challenges.
