Milky Lane and Milking Shed Cottage on Niekerksfontein Farm


Come and share the tranquillity of our working dairy farm in Mooi River, KwaZulu Natal Midlands.

Milky Lane Cottage is situated on Niekerksfontein Farm. Niekerksfontein Farm is a 1000 hectare dairy farm milking 800 cows supplying Honeydew Dairies. The farm is on the R622 18km out of Mooi River, we are close to the Midlands Meander route, within easy reach of the finest restaurants, schools, spas, galleries and wedding venues in the country.

Whether you want to overnight en-route to the coast or inland, explore the numerous attractions of the Midlands Meander, or just to relax and unwind in our tranquil surroundings, come and enjoy the fresh country air and our warm hospitality.




Wander in the fields amongst our dairy cows or in the natural veld that is home to Oribi, Reed Buck, Duicker as well as nocturnal Ant Bears, Aard Varks, Brown Hyena and Porcupine. We have an abundant bird population with 28 pairs of Blue Crane and 12 pairs of Crested Crane being counted on the pastures. There is a large raptor population with Gymnogenes, Fish Eagles, Jackal Buzzards and Long crested eagles being frequently spotted. Large flocks of White Backed Cape vultures also frequent the farm as well as an array of the smaller and water variety birds.



There are 3 catchment dams and 2 holding dams that are stocked with Bass. The top catchment dam is stocked with trout so you are more than welcome to bring your own rod. For the more adventurous and energetic there are some good mountain bike rides and a more strenuous hike through the gorge up to the small waterfall during the rainy season. There are farm gates all over the farm to keep animals either in or out so if all gates can be left in the manner they were found it will be greatly appreciate. Milking and calf feeding takes place twice a day and visitors are more than welcome to watch.
