We stopped to buy some take away coffee but felt super uncomfortable. Take away coffee consisted of Jacobs instant coffee and any place that has old south african and free state flags to buy is just wrong

Such friendly staff treated us to a true Karoo breakfast at a great price! Pet friendly in the restaurant area and plenty of space for kids.

Very quaint tea garden. I had blueberry cheesecake and a berry milkshake. Picking berries for only R50 was fun. It would make a good outing with kids.

This is an interesting little place to visit. They have berry trees and a nice little shop to buy the products produced. Very friendly staff when we visited.

Misguided. Very little berries to pick. R50 each for adults and kids. Don't bother visiting. Not worth the visit.

We found the berry farm after being stuck in Deneysville over night
Upon arrival, the lady was sweet and welcoming. She explained everything that we could do and see and my boyfriend and I paid our R50pp entrance into the berry orchid. Between the 2 of us, we had one tray to share. Everyone else got their own trays.
We picked our berries - enough to decently split between 2 people- and returned back to the farm house where we were told to pay. We told the “sweet” lady that we would like to order some food and so she sat us down and told us she would be with us shortly
After 40 minutes of waiting, with not one waitress even sparing 2 seconds of time, we had to find a waitress inside where we kindly placed our order
Our milkshakes were warm, the waffle was flat and dense and the cheesecake was not that great. Our bill was given to us without us requesting it then too. We went inside to purchase a jam and collect our berries. No surprises here ladies and gentleman, our hand chosen berry punnet for 2, was given to another person and we received a lousy punnet of let’s say 50 berries. After explaining that there has been a mistake, we were told to go back into the orchid for free, re-pick our berries (over 2 hours have passed now since we picked our berries) and pay for the excess. Needless to say, we settled our expenses and left, lousy punnet in hand.
I must ask, was it because we were English? Every other non English person has immaculate service. Bob-Af Berry Farm, I want answers!
Kind people, please do not make that drive there, you will have a better experience with better service at your local home affairs!

Sadly we had bought some of their jams before asking the owner about the pyramid on the farm. We are a mixed race family and he made a point of telling us that he refuses to hire black people, and that all his multilingual welcome signs are 'in all the white languages'. They also proudly sell apartheid flag paraphernalia. What a horrible experience.

We were basically left to our own devices to wander through the overgrown berry plants. Without guidance we didn't really know which berries we were tasting. In all fairness we were warned the season was well along, but wouldn't have gone at all if we knew trying to find a ripe berry was like looking for a needle in a haystack.

The jam we bought did salvage the day to a certain extent, but all in all a wasted few hours

Loved our trip there and will be back. The owner , Hanes Coetzee, is a fascinating man and I could have sat there all day with him. The berry dishes are divine. The museum is a tripod nostalgia. Those who think pyramids are in Egypt, need to see the unique one Hannes built. Along with a maze and working sun clock. The berry smoothie alone is worth the trip there.

We were welcomed warmly by the owners and farm dogs of this beautiful berry farm, it's a great place to while away the day. I'd highly recommend trying the freshly pressed berry juice with no added sugar, to experience the goodness of farm fresh produce with no added nasties. Berry picking is throughout the Summer.
