We called ahead and they told us there was minimal strawberries left but we went anyway, kids enjoyed the play area and the little bucket of strawberries where delicious and you get to keep the bucket! There's a lovely little store, and pony rides and tractor rides as well, maybe carry along a picnic because the food there is not... More

Our December vacation was closed off with a visit to this lovely family friendly farm, besides 1 small hiccup, the day was really lovely. Good weather kept us picking strawberries until our containers were over flowing. The children's play area kept the children well busy, with lots to do. The basic food menu at the kiosk, is actually really good... More

During our three months in South Africa we came here three times. The first and second time we picked three big containers (45 rand each) and especially the second time, at the height of the season in mid December, the strawberries were simply the best we've ever had! The last time, roughly a week ago, the farm was so so... More

Very much enjoyed our visit to this farm, dotted with many different scarecrows. You choose your bucket size depending on how adventurous you feel, and pay for that. The strawberries you pick are then paid for. As January is nearing the end of the season we had a little trek to the part of the farm where strawberries were still... More

Worth every cent and the shop is much cheaper with jam and preserved fruit than up the West Coast! Food prepared on-site is also delicious😃

Don't waste you time going for this. There are hardly any strawberry's and you have to walk about a kilometer to a field which you allowed to pick. I was not allowed to go with my kids that are 10 and 11, because I didn't have a bucket. Then was subject to abuse by staff because I didn't want my... More

Great to pick your own strawberries an eat them, my family enjoyed this, it was a very short and quick time out and we picked many strawberries. Great wine farms in the vicinity as well for all to enjoy.

The playgym at the entrance already caught the attention my kids once we parked our car. My kids aged 7, 4 n 1 spent quite some time playing there. For strawberry picking, All adults that accompany need to purchase a bucket as well. Prices for the buckets vary depending on sizes but is very reasonable. Kids below 3 are free.... More

Lovely few hours spent with the kids rummaging through the abundant strawberry patches. The place gets quite full but rest assured there are enough strawberries to go around. Alittle but of walking to get to the patches but nothing too major and small kids will easily do it. We experienced a lovely overcast summers day, so bring lots of sunblock... More
