About us - grassroots

Month end | 4-for-3 spa madness

The 9.4ha farm was bought by the owners in 1999 to escape of the hustle and bustle of the big city life. Originally a sheep speculation farm, dating back to 1881, with extremely fertile clay soil, it soon found new life as a strawberry farm starting with a mere 500 strawberry plants.
Escape from the big city

During the early days and over the next few years

Some of the old rooms were renovated and became a guest house, which were run part-time in the early days. Over the next few years the situation changed and the guest house got busier and the strawberry patch got bigger, eventually big enough for the guest house visitors to enjoy strawberries during the spring months. After a few years, the strawberries in the fields were in profusion and so strawberry picking was born. The news of strawberry picking picked up momentum as people spread the word about picking and eating delicious natural organically grown strawberries in the fields. Some berries were the size of peaches. The Spa at The Strawberry Farm then came into being some years later.

Our Strawberry Picking Season has come to a close until September 2024!
Now is the time for preparing and planting as nature intended for our next season.

However, our restaurant is open. A visit to our restaurant is a must!!! We offer a delicious range of goodies from breakfasts to light lunches and all sorts of decadent treats like fresh strawberry milkshakes, strawberry & Dutch apple waffles & our signature strawberry cheesecake – to die for!

Make your plans NOW for your visit to us – an outing not to be missed.

Opening the SPA

The spa opened at first as an addition to the guest house, stay over and have a massage, or have a full day of massage, dinner, bed and breakfast. The owners daughter, who is a massage therapist and trainer, assisted with the training of the spa therapists and the setting up of the spa.
The spa grew in leaps and bounds, offering more affordable treatments than most other spas out there. As it grew, due to the demand for the Spa some of the guest house rooms were converted to Spa Treatment rooms.

The Guest house

Currently, the guest house consists of 3 double rooms, two of which have spa baths in them. As this is a working farm, we have our beloved pets, 6 dogs, 3 cats, a gaggle of geese, a handful of ducks and an amazing amount of wild bird life.
Nature runs free on our farm, so please don’t bring your own pets. Our pets do not appreciate the “animal visitors”. Our dogs may be big, but they are very customer friendly.
