  • Raspberry picking and fresh air!

    The Field Berry Farm

    I love driving around and this seems like an excellent idea to me! Fresh air, going to a new venue and even picking raspberries in Gauteng! This farm is about 20 minutes from Southgate on the N1 towards Bloemfontein. There will be food, vinegar, jams and other raspberry products available to enjoy as well. COST Entrance fees: R40 per adult and R30 per child/pensioner Picking raspberries: R130 per kg Frozen berries: R100 per kg There are also trails available if you want to bring your kids' bikes and take them for a ride. Pun intended. It would be lovely to share this Sunday morning in the company of fellow explorers of Johannesburg. Check your diary and add your name as attending if you want to join this excursion. FINAL ARRANGEMENTS: I will send an e-mail with my phone number and any other relevant arrangements in the week of the event. WEBSITE: https://thefieldberryfarm.com/
