Wedding Planning Tips
Piggly Wiggly Farm Stall
January 31, 2014
Travelling through the rolling hills of the Natal Midlands following the narrow, twisting roads and country lanes along the Midlands Meander you get exposed to tucked-away cottages, workshops and studios where craftspeople of all kinds create pottery, weave rugs, paint pictures, fashion wind chimes, stitch handmade shoes and bags, sculpt clay, ceramics and bronze, brew beer and wine, and cook up some of the best home-made food in the country.
However, if you’re short of time, and maybe just have a couple of hours en route to Durban or Johannesburg, you can go to the one-stop Piggly Wiggly Country Village, just along Nottingham Road, past the historic prestigious boys’ school, Michaelhouse.
Piggly Wiggly already has more than 20 very different shops, as well as a fabulous coffee shop where the award-winning cappuccino and the freshly baked cheesecake are already bywords. Its like a stop Midlands Meander experience.
Piggly Wiggly Farm Stall even offers a Piggy putt-putt course with plenty of places to sit, and tall trees. The village still has a ‘newish’ feel, but the steady stream of visitors and locals gave it a great buzz.
You will find a whole range of the Midlands Meander names here like Ground Cover, the Candle dipping Shop and Stirlings Wrought Iron. For those of you with kids Piggly Wiggly offers candle-dipping and ceramic painting. And for the girls there is the Lavender Co (handmade soap and lotions); Sterling’s Wrought Iron (attractive plant and candle holders); Zulu Lulu (gorgeous art and handmade pottery); Mushka (scarf and children’s clothes); and so much more.
But dont forget the edible goodies which include hand made cheese, speciality breads, artisan cured meats, and venison carpaccio.
Piggly Wiggly certainly makes for a worthwhile stop as you pass throgh the Natal Midlands. Dont miss out.
