La Petite Ferme general manager Riaan Kruger expressed his gratitude to their loyal guests and dedicated staff as the etablishment marks its four-decade existance

“Traditionally, a celebration of 40 years is known as the ruby anniversary. But, for La Petite Ferme at this time, it’s the actual number ‘40’ that has the greater significance as it aptly signifies new life, new growth, transformation and change," he said.
