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.
Be sure to pop into the brand spanking new (opens 29 November ’21) Family Visitor Centre, which is just a spectacular facility offering a cafe, ice cream parlour, marketplace and plenty of space to sit down and rest the legs.

How much? $5 per person (13+ years) plus $10.95 per kilo of strawberries picked.

Farm shop is open from 9am to 5pm during Strawberry Picking season – with last field entry no later than 4.15pm.
Large group bookings are essential – special prices for groups of children apply.
It’s worth keeping your eyes on their website or Facebook page to confirm the patch is open and ready for picking. Sometimes (particularly on weekends), they are so busy that they simply “picked out”. But don’t worry – a few days later and they’re back in action! The Farm Shop remains open even when PYO is closed, so there’s always something to see, do and taste!
