On the vlakte, a broken country with its limestone reefs between Riversdale and Jongensfontein, we do not need to make up a story. Stories and truncated truths like a tree sprout out seemingly of their own accord ready to be re-told.
So, we never lie, except for when we cannot fully agree with a story. In that case we stack up that story bundle by its right measurements as it ought to be.
Farm tales with a lot of soul is more than just tell-tales about an area. It is for reading, journeying and clambering in – even plunging – into another world. But more so, it is a peek into genuine people’s inside – where you may recognise something about yourself.
