Umvoti Villa Farm

Of all the images I took for the book Farmhouses of Old Natal (Otterley Press 2017), my favorite is that of Umvoti Villa Farm in the Umvoti (Greytown ) District.

The farm which is owned by the Tarr family, is run by Linda and Dawie Pieterse, who are well renowned for Tarr’s Roses. Built in the late 1880’s this farmhouses is little altered and the image speaks for itself.

The Tarr’s were keen to rake up the leaves before my shoot, but thankfully I delayed this attempt at orderliness!!
