History of Die Houthoop

Die Houthoop is a guest farm in the Northern Cape, Namaqualand. The name is derived from a pile of wood, packed in a semi-circle that serves as an open air restaurant. The Redfig wood is from a bush that grows on the farm.

 

Willem van Dyk (sr) started the “skerm” in 1954.

It was traditionally used for:  cooking food, to bake bread (there used to be a bread oven in the boma) and to make soap from animal fat over the open fire. This was done in a potjie.
