“A delightful place”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

A lovely place for some strawberry picking . The entrance is just 3 rands per head . And you pay for the strawberries you pick @27 rands per kg . The fruit was delicious and our daughter had a lovely time picking strawberries. They have a lovely farm shop where the stuff is reasonably priced.

“must stop ........”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

I had already decided to stop her on our way to Spier but I did not count how popular it would be with kids that we had to stop 2 days in row & eat lots & lots of strawberries..........glad I did as the kids have this one happy memory of Stellenbosh along with Eagle Encounter.we are teetotalers & had gone to Stellenbosh just to experience the beautiful vineyards but it was spring & the vines were still dormiant......it was still beautiful but this was the experience which added personality to our trip.

“Sweet Sunday Strawberry Picking”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I would say that driving to Stellenbosch and picking strawberries, is the perfect Sunday activity. It is fun for young and old. The farm is so well maintained that it is a pleasure to walk along the lanes of strawberries while picking the gorgeous red, sweet fruits. The shop stocked all kinds of South African produce that I haven't come across in ages. It was a really lovely day out.

“Polkadraai farm an absolute pleasure!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

I recently visited Polkadraai Farm and was blown away by the absolute beauty.

We had a great time strawberry picking, the children had a ball and we were able to purchase some delicious wines and goodies in the quaint farm-stall.

We will be back!
