Pick the Field Berry Farm as one of the spots to visit this year #947JoburgGems
16 days ago
We recently discovered a #947JoburgGem that takes you out of the busy city life and brings about a peaceful and quiet countryside to life. The Field Berry Farm is simply breathtaking with an absolutely beautiful view on the farm.
The business officially started in 1993, where the owners had an idea of bringing something different to everyday routines. They invite the public to pick berries during the picking season, which is between January and April, every single year.
It’s become a tourist destination where people from different countries specifically book a trip to South Africa only during the picking season, so they can partake in this incredible experience. With over 35 employees working at The Field Berry Farm, they make sure nothing but the best produce is presented and offered to the public.
What’s even more exciting is that they allow school field and educational trips to make them a destination, where school children can learn more about what it takes to grow berries, how to take care of them and the different ways they can be used. The different final products being jams, smoothies or syrups and cakes.
The Field Berry Farm is located on a huge piece of land and they’ve opened to the public to be able to hire the venue for weddings and parties. A simple place that can be turned into anything you desire, whether it be glamorous or straightforward.
We are within the Berry picking season and we highly recommend it. It’s definitely worth a visit. It’s open Saturday and Sunday, 9AM - 3PM. From as only as R30 for children and pensioners to R40 for adults (thereafter you weigh and pay for the berries you have picked), it’s an affordable experience for family and friends.
