Strawberry Picking Beerenberg Farm (late October to April)
A red ripe freshly picked strawberry has got to be one of the tastiest things in the whole world doesn’t it?
If you haven’t taken the kids fruit picking yet definitely put it on the list these school holidays, and there’s no better spot than Pick your Own Strawberries at Beerenberg Farm in Hahndorf. It’s the perfect activity with your kids that involves being outdoors in nature, exercise and eating!
Their season runs from late October through to April. Beerenberg have offered PYO strawberries for over 40 years and never missed a season.
It is probably best suited for 4-10 year olds. You can also visit the farm shop and purchase some tasty South Aussie condiments to add some extra flavour to your next meal. If you feel like making a day of it, you can also visit the Farm Barn, which is just down the road.
