For Sale: The Farm Backpackers, Ceres

The Property Is No Longer Available

Anyone interested in working and living in idyllic Ceres? The Farm Backpackers is up for sale as owners Chris and Laura Venter are heading off to pursue other business concerns.

Located on a working fruit farm, on the banks of the Breede river and surrounded by mountains, workers cottages have been arduously restored to provide basic accommodation for 30 backpackers, groups and team building events. A lot of work has gone into this place in the way of obstacle courses, a volleyball court, pool and plenty of bush clearing. It is quite rustic and you will not forget that you are on a fruit farm.


There are places for pitching tents, a gather-round camp fire area and a small bar with pool table. Wine and Olive tours are run in-house and many other activities can be booked through nearby operators, like quad biking, horse riding and abseiling.

There are several dams containing Bass, Carp and Tilapia, miles of orchards and a donkey paddock. The backpackers land is leased from the farm at a very low rental and a long agreement. See Chris and Laura’s advert below:
