Berry Picking @ Wildebraam

About

Berry season starts mid Nov and runs till the end of Dec (around Christmas)… harvesting season is 6 weeks only !!!

Entrance fee per person is R15.

We supply a bucket for picking or you can bring your own. You are welcome to purchase the bucket and lid afterward to take home at a rate of R12 for the medium and R17 for the large.

After returning to the cellar, we weigh the berries and invoice accordingly after packing in zip lock bags. (Blackberries R28 /kg and Youngberries R38 /kg)

During peak season you do not have to make a reservation to go berry picking , you can just arrive.   We suggest that you visit early in the morning for then the berries are firm and it is not too hot for the family. Remember the sun screen and your hat !

Berry Orders

BERRY ORDERS:

In order to avoid disappointment, it is preferable   to place your order for pre-picked fresh berries during season 1-2 days in advance and we will have it ready upon arrival. Please bear in mind that whilst we can only pick fresh when weather permits, we do have freshly frozen available all year round. For large orders of frozen berries, (more than 15kgs) we also prefer a 1-2 day lead time to ensure sufficient stock during busy periods.

After picking your own berries, you are welcome to visit our tasting room where we sell a large range of products manufactured on the farm and offer tasting sessions ( LIQUEURS, JAMS, PICKLES, CHILLIES AND  RELISHES) .

Our Coffee shop will be open for the berry season and will offer an assortment of delicious berry products and light meals.

Groups larger than 10 persons requiring a personalised tasting session/”pick your own” experience @ R15/head  are welcome to book with the office on 028 5143132.
