The Beerenberg Farm is getting ready for their upcoming harvest, with strawberries, cherries, gherkins, plums, roses (their petals go in their petal jelly) and hot chillies. Beerenberg Strawberry Farm grow so much that they have over 50 people working just to look after the harvest!
The Farm is also a Tourist Attraction which has attracted pickers from all over the world since 1975. To give you an insight into how big the harvest is, last year over 28,000 people picked 5 tonnes of strawberries! That’s alot of picking!
If you’re in the area this Sunday, October 27th, the farm will be offering free access from 2pm-4pm to the strawberry patch and you’ll also be able to get a free feed with scones served by the SA Country Womens Association.
Make sure to enquire about a fruit picking job and as strawberry season will last to mid May, what are you waiting for?!
Best of Luck,
The Fruit Picking Jobs Team
