Virginia Farm in Eston


Virginia Farm is situated in the Eston region of Kwa Zulu Natal. Eston is situated halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, and is predominantly a sugar cane farming area. This region also forms part of one of the oldest conservancies, namely the Beaumont Eston Conservancy. Conservancies are voluntary committees made up of the local community, and its user groups which practise co-operative environmental management. Due to the topography of this region, farming is not suited to all the areas and pockets of undeveloped land exist, which are still in a pristine state, rich in plant, animal and bird life.

The farm owners Pete and Lou Stainbank have decided to share these pristine areas, along with their commercial farm operation, with you, by providing self catering accommodation and a chance for you to utilise the resource for your pleasure, be it birding, hiking, fishing, cycling etc.
