Buffalo Ridge is a farm just outside Wellington in the Western Cape. We have almost 30 Water Buffalo, imported from Campana in Italy in 2008. Owned by Wayne and Michelle Rademeyer, the farm has been in operation since 2009, with the very first batch of Buffalo Ridge Mozzarella sold in February 2010. We also make delicious Buffalo Yoghurt, which we sell in smaller quantities to selected delis and small markets in and around Cape Town.
The farming techniques at Buffalo Ridge are based on natural, environmentally friendly principles. No pesticides, herbicides or ecologically harmful substances or practices are permitted. Our cheese contains no additives, colourants or flavourants. The Buffalo are milked gently and naturally, and pasture-fed, which not only promotes their health, it also increases the calcium content in the milk and makes for a more flavourful cheese.
Our farm is not open to the public, but we welcome guests by prior arrangement. To sample our cheese at its absolute freshest, contact us and we’ll take you on a tour!
