And when guests don't feel like cooking, the host also offers discount vouchers for her vegan cafe in the village of Greyton.

About Your Host
I am a vegan British lady, living the dream on my farm in Greyton, South Africa where I have a farm animal sanctuary with 11 rescue pigs and 15 sheep - and counting! I also run Greyton Transition Town which is helping the community move together to a more sustainable lifestyle. I love the mountains where I live, having originally come from Cumbria in the UK, but most of all I love the people in this beautiful, idyllic village.
