Hidden Valley

Today, the shortest day of the year in the southern hemisphere, the sun rose at 9am and is setting at 4.35pm in our mountain-enclosed valley.
Over millions of years, the river bed has cut a narrow channel through the mountains to the west. The setting sun sends its last rays into our valley down this cleft.
As a result we have fewer hours of overhead sun and longer periods of half light than any of our Western Cape neighbours, creating a unique growing and maturing environment for plants.
