How often have you asked yourself what there is to do with kids in Johannesburg? I find myself battling with this dilemma pretty much every weekend, which drives me nuts because you want to be able to go to a place that not only they will like, but you will too! So when my lovely friend Gina King suggested going to The Field Berry Farm which involves, the outdoors, raspberry picking, raspberry eating, cake, food, homemade lemonade, beer and a play area we were in like flint! They even have a farm bike track for older kids, so take your bikes if you feel like a bit of a ride!
This beautiful little farm located in the South of Joburg has it all and it makes for such a wonderful full afternoon out for everyone and anyone. I mean who wouldn’t want to blissfully walk up and down rows of bushes laden with raspberries as the wind blows through your hair while you pick berries to your heart’s content.
Once you are done picking you can then enjoy all the good stuff that The Field Berry Farm actually hand make with their product. Like I mentioned above they have homemade raspberry beer as well as cakes, lemonade, smoothies, waffles, preserves and more! They also have a number of food stalls that serve everything from borie rolls to Chinese food.
Raspberry season happens from January to end April, which means you still have a bit of time to go. They are open on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 3 pm. They are also open on Easter Saturday and Sunday this year and are going to be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt for kids on both the days, which is pretty awesome! The cost per child will be R50 which will include entrance and the hunt. Fun!
We really enjoyed this little gem of a place and I would highly recommend it! Happy picking!
