    really very nice insightful tour of a farm where they try to do things the right way. Just bring good sun protection as you will mostly walk in the sun.

    An excellent walking or cycling tour of the farm. We have only been here three days but this was a really excellent hour spent. Thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you

    My husband and two friends did this walk on Saturday, 09 January 2016 and I have to say we were very impressed by this wonderful working farm. I had prevuiosly not been that impressed by Spier as I thought it to be very commercial and aimed at tourists. After doing this VoiceMap tour, however, I have defininerty changed my mind! They are a true inspiration with all the wonderful recycling and giving back to the community. Well done Spier!
