The Backyard Homestead

How it all started

— Omphile Matane - Founder and MD Born in the North West Province which is mostly rural, I was raised in different villages around Mahikeng. I have always been fascinated by how our people were literally fed by the land they lived on. My mother often narrates how my grandfather would pay their school fees with a bowl of eggs from their chicken many years ago. My parents in law were farmers, raised 11 children through growing different produce such as maize and beans. I love travelling, and one thing I know fascinates mosts tourists is immersing themselves in the culture, food, heritage and lifestyle of the people and the places they visit. The Backyard Homestead is that place! That place where you get a real feel, touch and taste of the different livestock and crops that raised our parents and their parents. It is a celebration of the hard work they put in, and a continuation of running with the baton and putting some of our culture's food, drinks, onto world platforms, to be shared with the rest of the world.
