Take in the Scenery
Marvel at the breathtaking views from one of the designated viewpoints or take a walk through the natural forests. Don't forget your camera!
The following farms will be taking part in the Berry Festival:
RASPBERRIES: Kuhestan Organic Farm
Kuhestan is an organic raspberry and avocado farm, surrounded by both Afro-montane and pine forests. It offers visitors and guests welcome access to one of the most beautiful gardens on the Magoebaskloof mountains which attracts a generous variety of exotic forest birds. Kuhestan Products are also on offer – a range of delicious Persian cordials, preserves and pickles – produced on the farm and available for sale to guests and visitors, as are an imported range of Persian kilims.
BLUBERRIES: Blueberry Heights Farm
Blueberry Heights grows delicious, healthy blueberries in harmony with nature. We are an organically certified producer of export quality fresh and frozen blueberries. We are also developing our own range of blueberry products including cordial, jam and vinegar. Our orchards are located on Goedehoop Farm about 8km’s from Haenertsburg on the R71 (Road A24, just after Stansford Lake College).
BLUEBERRIES: Cheerio Gardens
The garden has stayed in the same family since inception in 1946. All the terraces were made by hand, and the love and dedication that went into the task is visible as you wander along the moss-covered pathways. Our vision is for visitors to enjoy the peace and tranquility the gardens have to offer. A number of picnic spots are available so bring a blanket, a bottle of good wine and a picnic basket, we supply the garden, the tree, the flowers and the peaceful surroundings.
