Three months ago Grace, Carien and Craig, as well as Jesse the rescue pooch, got the opportunity to move to a small holding outside Moorreesburg.
A few weeks later a business opportunity also presented itself.
We moved at the end of June and opened Moorrees on the 1st July during Level 4 restrictions. Unfortunately, we tested positive a week later and decided to close Moorrees for 5 days to make sure everyone involved is healthy.
Our vision is to create a space where people can eat, drink and socialize.
We moved to Moorreesburg to support family, but in return we feel so supported by our own extended family and the community!
A dream to live in the country and create a business that incorporates our experience and training came together at 8 Hoofstraat.
Carien is the brand developer with experience in hospitality, wine and the transformation realm.
Her vision for Moorrees is clear – sourcing local produce to offer in the deli.
Good food, warm hospitality and a welcoming environment to socialize, eat and drink.
She can’t wait to host wine tastings, workshops and social events in the “Lokaal”.
Craig is responsible for the wholesale distribution of the bakery and he is the in-house smoker.
Once we can start operating fully , we will offer a Friday night market, outdoor movie nights and much more.
Moorreesburg Deli will open their doors today! Pop in for a takeaway or restricted sit-down.
