THE STORY BEHIND
OUR CANNONS

The VOC installed more than 50 cannons on hills and mountains around the Cape to form a Signal Gun chain that could call the Burgher Militia to defend the Cape. This Signal Gun chain extended from the Signal Hill, Cape Town via Durbanville to Citrusdal in the North West, Worcester in the north and via Tygerberg to Suurbraak beyond Swellendam in the east. Some of these cannons are still used to fire on our farm today, 300 years later, on joyful occasions.

Every so often we fire our 300 year old cannon.
This takes place at 13:00 every 1st Saturday of each month, including public holidays.

Why Cannons
We decided to honour our Father, Ryk de Wit, who has one of the biggest collections of restored cannons (all on Signal Gun Wine Farm) in Western Cape.
