If you are looking for a fun and original day out there is nothing that rivals the Redberry Farm experience. As one enters the farming area just outside George on the Geelhoutboom Road, you will be in awe of the rows and rows of strawberries in what is now known as “Strawberry Country”. Redberry Farm is the first beacon that greets tourists along the beautiful Outeniqua Hop Route, where one is lured in by the sweet aroma of ripe berries.
Once you’ve chosen your container, you will be guided to the “Pick Your Own” strawberry fields, where you can take a carefree walk through the farm with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains in the background. A bulging container is a sure sign that the harvest is plentiful and one will quickly discover that the sweetest strawberry is the one that is hand-picked and eaten at room temperature. The best time for juicy sweet strawberry picking is from August to January, although Redberry Farm does pride itself in having strawberries all year round.
Once your container is full you can head to the Tea Garden and indulge in the most delicious farm fresh treats. The scones are an experience not to be missed - topped with farm butter, homemade strawberry preserve and fresh clotted cream. The children can immerse themselves in the outside playground, feed the rabbits, enjoy a train ride through the strawberry fields, ride a pony or experience walking on water in the Bubble Ball.
The Farm Stall shelves are lined with products and a strawberry theme permeates the building, where one can browse through the deli and other unique products. Strawberry punnets at bargain prices, strawberry liqueur, strawberry jam, strawberry syrup and many other preserves will get you through any withdrawal symptoms you may have when you leave Redberry Farm.
