Come see the Duck Parade
V-duck

Every morning, our team of 1100 Indian Runner Ducks head out into the vines to hunt out any snails and pests. They are a great asset to the farm and watching them run into the vines is a highlight for any visitor.

Come see the spectacle and then spend the day with us, tasting wine or blending your own wine and enjoying a picnic on the lawn. We’re open all season long, daily from from 9am – 5pm (incl. public holidays).

      There is no charge to see the ducks parade and you are welcome to feed the ducks after their parade (bags of grain are available for purchase from our Deli).

      Please note, there is a R10 entry fee to the farm (this goes towards our Integrated Duck Research Program) but this may be redeemed as a voucher against any wine purchase or experience at Vergenoegd.

  7. Hi David

    We are living on a farm in the Bela Bela area (Warmbaths) and would like to buy one or two pairs of your ducks to help with the pest control (mostly grasshoppers) in my organic vegetable garden.

    Do you sell the ducks? If so, how much are they going for and could we come to pick them up at the end of November?

    I’ve searched in Gauteng but unfortunately to no avail. If you don’t sell them, do you by chance know of any other Indian Runner Duck breeders/suppliers?

    Please help us.

    Kind regards,

    Ute Uys
