Welcome to the country life!

Less than an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of the big city is an idyllic piece of paradise we call Ground.


The Cronje’s old family farm — a stone’s throw from the Cradle of Humankind — has been transformed into a stunning venue that’s ideal for weddings, music festivals, sports events, picnics, year-end functions., birthday's.. in fact, any event you can think of!


You can even pop in for breakfast or brunch at Ground Café, where cyclists are especially welcome.



If you’re lucky, you only do it once — and it’s a day you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

At Ground, we can help make your wedding day everything you have always wanted it to
be. All you need to bring us are your dreams. We’ll do the rest.

Ground boasts a delightful choice of magical spaces, from the historical tobacco shed to the
wattle forest, from the pecan grove to the Cape vineyard. The entire farm is ready to be
transformed into the perfect wedding venue for any couple.

Choose from a selection of indoor and outdoor spaces, including our beautifully landscaped
gardens and lavender fields. You are free to wander around the farm and find the exact spot
that captivates you.

Contact us to arrange a visit.



Join one our our "Moving Ground" trail series, or join us at our cafe after your ride in the cradle.



Order your delicious picnic basket from our Ground Cafe and pick a spot between the vineyards, in the wattle forest or under one of our indigenous tree's.
