Pick-your-own Organic Vegetables & Strawberries
It looks like the Strawberry Season has come to an end.
Veggie Picking and Berry Picking
Entrance fee: R30 per Adult
R25 per Child under 12
On the last weekend of every month of 2014 (including 13 December and 16 December) we have organic veggies and fruit that are in season, so on these days, you are welcome to head down to the fields and see what is available for picking.
Remember to bring hats and sunscreen, as the sun can get rather harsh during the day. As we have really good clay soil that sticks to everything, plus we do water regularly, please bring old shoes, as this is guaranteed to be a muddy experience!
Strawberries are a spring fruit, and the strawberry picking season started on 4 October and ran until 13 December 2014.
The second weekend of December has arrived, and by lunch time on the 13th, the strawberries have just come to an end. At this point, and we don't hold much hope for strawberries to be available on Tuesday (16 December).
The plants have been sending out runners for a good few weeks already and that usually signifies the season is drawing to a close.
Currently in season:
Leeks, Baby Leeks, Swiss Chard (Spinach), Red Onions, Carrots, Baby Marrows, Golden Wax Beans and Beetroot
Butternut, Radishes, Green Beans and Chantenay Carrots
Brown Onions, Purple Beans, Tropeana Lunga Onions, Artichokes, Asparagus, Boston Pickling Cucumbers and Nantes Carrots
