The simple joys of a life in the country are not as easily described in words as they are through experiences. In this case, an experience made up of a simple loaf of bread; the “butcher’s bread” as the townsfolk fondly call it.

It’s the combination of a brisk, early morning stroll in Autumn, greeting passersby on your way to a quaint, thatched-roof deli, doors open onto a street nestled under oak trees in the historic heart of Swellendam, the baker shooting you a greeting from behind the counter, and that freshly made loaf of bread, still warm from the oven, that takes you back to simpler days, that feeling of being at home in the country.
