Pick your own berries at Polkadraai Farm, as famous for its sweet strawberries as for its colorful, humorous scarecrows. A perfect outing for family and friends, the Winelands farm has a playground for children and organizes many farm games. Pick as many strawberries as you can during the season (September to December). A kiosk on site sells a wide range of jams, preserves, and dried fruit. You can also choose from a wide array of vintages from estates in and around the Stellenbosch wine route. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Stellenbosch trip simple and quick.

A fun experience to pick my own strawberries and the children loved it. We chose the option with a bucket for picking and one activity. For the activity we could choose between a tractor ride, putt putt, face painting or a pony ride. We chose the putt putt and although it looks like a tiny course it has 18 holes and is quite the challenge. There is also a shop and a take away with tables. Just remember to pack a hat and sunscreen, most of the activities are fully in the sun. Will go again for sure!
One of the must visit attractions in Cape Town/ Stellenbosch during Strawberry season. I would suggest to go early as it can become very busy/crowded later in the day. You can buy an empty bucket which you can then fill with strawberries. There are also pony rides, tractor rides and a big outside play area for the kids. Strawberry bucket prices start from R40.
