The Farm Eatery at Diemersdal

The Farm Eatery is a place where you can enjoy the flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambience in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations. Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made, and the bread freshly baked. A balance of traditional roots and tantalising countryside cuisine mixed with homely farm vibes, and edgy cooking. That’s how we roll.

Meet Martin

The Head Chef & Proprietor

Born in Pretoria, and schooled in Durbanville, Chef Martin de Kock originally had his sights set on a legal career and was accepted as a law student at Stellenbosch University. His mother encouraged his passion for great cuisine and swayed him to turn his talent for cooking into a professional career. And so, Martin went on to attend the prestigious Institute for Culinary Arts (ICA) in Stellenbosch.

Whilst studying, Chef Martin did practical stints at leading Cape restaurants, including the Green House at Cellars-Hohenhort in Constantia, and Overture in Stellenbosch. Chef Martin also worked at Jordan Restaurant under Chef George Jardine before moving to Diemersdal in 2014, where he has been Head Chef since its inception, establishing The Farm Eatery as one of the most popular culinary destinations in the Cape Town Winelands.
