Good to the earth. Good to people.
At Spier, 'good' is more than a philosophy – it's action. Our commitment to life in all its forms is evident in how we raise our free-range animals without antibiotics or hormones, and how we cultivate our organic vines, fruits, and vegetables without harmful pesticides or fertilisers. Our dedication to the land extends to restoring its natural balance, demonstrated by clearing non-native vegetation and planting over a million indigenous species. We're proud that 100% of our water is recycled, and more than 98% of our solid waste is repurposed, reflecting our deep respect for the environment.
But our role extends beyond the farm gates. Our Growing for Good initiatives are about sharing with our communities that, in turn, become agents for change. Take Tree-preneurs, for instance. This program empowers individuals in underprivileged communities to cultivate trees, in exchange for essential goods, fostering both environmental stewardship and economic opportunity. Through work experience, training, and mentorship programs spread across our operations - from the hotel and restaurants to the farm, gardens, cellar, and even in the arts - we're cultivating a community of skilled, empowered individuals.
