Rosemary Hill is situated on beautiful farmland just east of Pretoria. It is an organic working farm and has been in operation since 1978. From cultivating seedlings and planting veggies to distilling essential oils, this farm is truly unique in what it has to offer. The herd of Nguni cattle is always nearby to add a beautiful splash of colour to the landscape.

We designed and built this beautiful garden in 2011. It is 80 m in diameter and has over 1 km of paving with over 3000 plants. It is still growing but is already beautiful after just a year. It is used for classical music concerts, art exhibitions, wedding ceremonies and cocktail parties.
Rosemary Hill is one of the very few establishments in South Africa that offers an authentic Morning- or Afternoon- or High Tea experience. Rather than providing a buffet and expecting guests to help themselves, our teatime treats are freshly prepared for your enjoyment and presented on elevated tiers with beautiful freshly picked herbs and flowers from our gardens. Each individual treat is made and served with special attention. Our fine selection of blended teas is brought to the table in special tubes so that guests can experience the beautiful aromas before making a choice.
We specialize in tea parties - from Bridal Tea Parties, Stork Tea Parties, little girl themed Tea Parties to more intimate tea for two or even 'Me-time-Tea-time' where you can bring your book, and spend the afternoon sitting under the tree, reading, eating and drinking tea ...
The latest addition to the farm is a fun and safe trail for hikers, runners and cyclists. Our trails leads through beautiful rosemary fields, past dams, across streams and through indigenous vegetation. A small entrance fee of R20 per adult and R10 per child is payable at the Restaurant. Gates open at 07h00.
Rosemary hill is green; We make our own compost from all the food waste, we re-use all containers that we can, we have bins on the farm for glass, paper, boxes, plastic and cans that is collected by a recycling company on a weekly basis, we have been farming organically and bio-dynamically for over thirty years and we are busy changing all our geysers to solar geysers on the farm and have converted 20% of them so far.
