The family-run business has been crafting cheese for more than 20 years on the Farmstead and has been passed down the Lourens family for three generations since 1971.

Klein River Cheese Farmstead is situated near Stanford, an art and foodie heritage village, surrounded by a lazy, meandering river, lush forests and grey-cliff, jagged mountains.

This is also the home of the Baleta family since March, 2015. They are originally from Tzaneen, Limpopo, where they have farmed for 32 years. In their years of experience they have founded a world-class independent high school and established, and still maintain, a successful achar business.

The Baleta family is dedicated to ensuring that we live and work in tune with our environment, community and Farmstead.
