19 December 2016
Strawberry picking season has ended for this year.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to the new strawberry season in 2017.
Please keep a look out on our website for the start of the new season.
Our picnic area, Day Spa & Forage & Feast Restaurant are open through out the year except for 24, 25, 26, 27, 31 December 2016 & 1 & 2 January 2017 when we give our staff a well earned rest.
We look forward to the New Year with excitement!!!
We wish all our visitors and the people of our beautiful country a very Peaceful and Blessed Christmas & a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
I'ts been an odd season this year, and is about at an end.
The heat and drought took its toll on the farm this year, even with us irrigating from our own dam.
We have started preparing for our 2017 season already, and look forward implementing our new ideas and strategies.
This year we saw more people visit our fields than ever before, and being picked out on most Saturdays showed us that, as we had more plants in more fields for picking, and still we were picked out most Saturdays. We are looking at making good, positive changes this year, still keeping it organic, but hopefully we will have even more berries for you, the public, to come and pick.
Also, the growth of our vegetable picking has been well received by many, with a good variety of carrots, beetroot, lettuce, radishes, beans and much more available for everyone to pick.
With our picking season over, it means that we will revert back to being open on the last weekend of each month during the year (except December) for picking of our heirloom vegetables.
Our restaurant Forage & Feast, will remain open serving breakfast and lunch, on a limited menu, Monday to Sunday, and serving dinner Wednesday to Saturday evening. Dinner is to be prebooked on 012 207 1116.
We still look forward to welcoming you to The Strawberry Farm.
Our latest 8 course wine paired dinner menu has been announced for Saturday 19 November.
The menu is available on our catering website www.fraise.co.za on the page Fraise Gourmet Dining
Dinner is strictly by prior booking only, at R650 per person.
Book now to avoid disappointment
The strawberries, from the sounds of it, have been picked out in our fields today. We do still have mulberries, delicious big black ones, gorgeous plump white ones, and then our own rose half breed - varying in colour from a very light purple, to almost black. Each has its' own subtle flavour differences.
The heat of the last while, as well as the nasty drought that we have been in the grip of, has really taken its' toll on the strawberries this season. Many of the plants have started to send out runners, signifying that the strawberry production will be coming to an end. This happens when the plants decide that spring is over and summer has us in its' hot and sweaty grasp.
We expect that we will have at most 2 weekends left of strawberry picking for this season, which means that our season will have been shortened by a good 3 weeks this year from last years' season.
Our restaurant will be open though, Monday to Sunday for breakfast and light lunches, Friday nights and Saturday nights for dinner, until 8pm.
See you at the farm
The fields are closed for today, the masses of people,crazy heat and nasty drought are taking their toll on the strawberries. The plants are sending out runners, signifying the strawberry production will be tapering off - we have the heat to thank for that...
On a different note, we would like to announce that our restaurant - Forage and Feast - will be open for dinner from Friday evening. We will be open every Friday and Saturday evening for dinner. A chalkboard menu will be available, unless we run our 8 course gourmet dinner. Our next 8 course dinner will be held on Saturday 19 November 2016, and prior booking is essential.
The heat has really taken hold of us on the farm. It's sweltering on the farm.
This heat is not conducive to growing of strawberries, and we have noticed this week that there are more and more plants sending out runners... this leads to the season coming to an end.
We have still had a really crazy day on the farm so far today, with loads of people coming through. We are closing the fields for the rest of the day, and will evaluate the quantity of strawberries available for picking, we will then decide whether we will open for picking tomorrow.
