  • Description


    We are Mathew and Lonnie Castle who live on a beautiful 250 year old farm in Humlebæk, North Sealand surrounded by stunning nature with the sea only 1,5 km away. We are enjoying farm life with our 9 year old son Charley Hunter, our 16 chickens, 2 ponies, two dogs and a cat. Mathew is a South African wine farmer, now living in Denmark and importing his wines from his favourite Stellenbosch estates. Lonnie is working with interior and branding in Copenhagen. We are carefully renovating our entire farm and growing our 2,6 hectar property using both ancient and modern techniques. At the moment we are building a huge country kitchen and wine tasting area, renovating and building cob walls with clay from our property - a slow and interesting proces. We are dedicated, social and love to create and we believe we live on the most beautiful spot in the country. We would love to meet new people from all over the world and share our passion, our home and experiences with farm life.
