Irene Dairy Farm is a picturesque gem that nestles between the sprawling cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg. A visit to this old-style, storybook dairy farm is a must. Started in 1895, the Irene Dairy Farm has been run the whole time by the van der Byl family who are now on to five generations and has become an iconic landmark in the Gauteng countryside. The Dairy Shop sells certified raw milk (one of the last places to do so) that is produced right there on the Irene Farm. The Shop also has a wide range of cheeses, cakes, rusks and other fresh fare. Moving through the farmyard, visitors should stop by the Deck or the Barn Restaurants, both of which serve a wide variety of freshly-made breakfast and lunch options.
