Best experience ever. Never know we have such a good experience in Cape town. You just pick strawberries freely without any interference also a good exercise for the body you sweat nice. Friendly workers there also

Total rip off and rubbish lying everywhere. Avoid. Needs maintenance and a good clean. Also ridiculous that every person has to purchase a bucket

This little Gem was our ‘pit-stop’ every afternoon after driving around and sight seeing. The food is amazing, but the cocktails were absolute divine and different. So many to choose from. Paul was truly the highlight of every visit making so we laugh, are comfortable and that we are having a great time. The servers are SERIOUSLY on the ball. We never wait long for anything. We never want to leave. Thank you for for being so kind, open hearted and just so incredibly humble. We love you guys

It was an enjoyable activity for the whole family to do. The place was quite bushy and we left with some scratches - overall it was okay. Best to pick what you need not to fill the containers. We struggled to finish. The berries were tasty!

We spent an enjoyable morning at polkadraai farm picking strawberries as the focus of our outing. We did not taste the strawberries as we picked as we understood that they might have been treated with insecticide and were specifically asked not to do so. I can't help but think that there was an alternative reason. When we got home and washed the strawberries they were terrible: watery and flavourless!!! I think it is a mistake by the owners to plant a poor variety maybe because it is so prolific? It means people will not come back for a second bite of the cherry so to speak. I know that we wont be returning!

Nice outing for the day with friends or family. Lovely to walk around and pick strawberries and enjoy the view. The food is really good. There is a shop as well. Definetly take a hat and sunscreen. And do take the biggest buckets! The small ones fill up quickly and you will have more strawberries to take home 🙂

The place needs serious maintenance done. There are holes in the ground in the picking area which are haphazardly covered with broken crates. This could pose a risk to people. The place in general needs a very good clean up of litter and grime. I wouldn’t go again until a huge springclean was done.

A very fun and enjoyable family outing - the quality of the strawberries are top class and its very affordable. Bonus is that you can have a picnic here as well.
