Celebrating MOOtastic fathers this June

HOT Rock for Men DL

I’m sure all the MOOthers out there enjoyed MOOther’s Day just as much as I did this year. Not only were all my wishes for a fun-filled Destination Irene experience fulfilled, but Bill went the extra field and treated me with an additional Camdeboo Day Spa Voucher which I will probably use during the winter to ensure my coat gets the treatment it deserves in this cold weather. I returned to my MOOtherly duties the next week feeling MOOrse relaxed and the delicious milk I produced was proof thereof.

After another busy day of grazing in the pastures yesterday, I arrived at the barn only to find a note attached to my bale of hay: MOOve over Mom – June is Daddy’s turn for spoils! No doubt Bill had something to do with my calves reminding me that 19 June 2016 is Father’s Day…

Attached to the note was a list of activities that Destination Irene has on offer, proof that it’s not only me that loves this destination, and I was so excited to see that there are so many ways to spoil Bill on this special day.

African Pride Irene Country Lodge is still running their Family Fun Promotion. Bill and I love to get away from the calves every now and then but when we do, they always MOOan that they are being left out. If I book this promotion, the calves will enjoy the weekend as much as we will. The package includes accommodation, a complimentary interleading room so the calves don’t feel completely alone, scrumptious full breakfast buffet for all of us and two hours of calf-minding services to ensure Bill and I can have a quiet romantic dinner.

But then I saw that Meadow Green Restaurant is offering a Father’s Day Lunch and I got even more excited. MOO’s around the pastures have been that Meadow Green Restaurant has recently launched a Smoked BBQ Menu within their buffet and I know that Bill would just be over the MOOn if he could get a taste of that. At R350 per person, this lunch is sure to win Bill’s heart over especially since it includes a welcome drink for Dad’s on arrival and a craft beer voucher for them to redeem at any point during the lunch.

Of course, Bill won’t openly admit it to the other bulls in the field but he’s a fan of Camdeboo Day Spa and this Father’s Day I’ll be sure to include a Hot Rock for Men treatment in his bag of gifts. A self-heating sugar back scrub with steam, 30 minute back, neck and shoulder massage with hot rocks and an application of a muscle relief gel for circulation will certainly do. I think I’ll sneak in an extra voucher too so he can join me when I book to relax and rejuvenate my winter coat.

IF - Father's Day DL1

Oops, I nearly forgot father-in-law! I know how much he loves the Irene Dairy Farm and their Father’s Day Lunch Buffet looks MOOlicious. For just R239.95 per person (R119.95 for calves under 12 years old and calves under 6 years old are free), the menu includes salads, veggies, seafood, carveries and everyone’s favourite, dessert. Dads will also get a gift – 1l of farm fresh milk which they will certainly enjoy.


  1. A Family Fun Weekend Getaway for a Family of four at African Pride Irene Country Lodge
    2. A Romantic Date Night for Two at the Camdeboo Day Spa
    3. A Sunday Lunch for four at the Irene Dairy Farm
    See below for competition details.


With so MOOny options, I’m going to have to hit the hay and sleep on what to choose. At least I know that whatever we end up booking for Father’s Day, Bill is going to love being spoilt at Destination Irene.

Wishing all Dad’s a MOOtastic Father’s Day…
