In more recent years, not long after the Van Der Merwe family purchased the land in 1995, plans were drawn up to establish a pecan nut orchard on the existing 33-hectare land, which is the ideal location to farm with Pecan Nuts. The family commenced planting in 1997.
The Nutcracker Country Venue was established in May 2010 and has hosted over 450 weddings since then. We are known for creating fond memories, catering fantastic food and providing the ideal backdrop for an incredible wedding celebration.
We are situated just outside Parys on a working pecan nut farm, ideally nestled along the banks of the Vaal River in the Vredefort Dome. We are owner-managed and strive towards providing you with personalised service during your stay. You are granted exclusivity to the estate, whether it be midweek or over a weekend.
Allow your guests to escape the city and enjoy a couple of days in the countryside, exchanging vows in our chapel and enjoying the festivities late into the night.
