Cherry Picking at Klondyke Cherry Farm

Cherry Picking at Klondyke Cherry Farm

’Tis the season to pick fresh cherries!

From the end of November until the first week of January, Klondyke Cherry Farm invites you, your family, and as many friends as you’d like, to spend a day of fun-filled (and bountiful) cherry picking in the fruitful Ceres Valley.

Held on the working Klondyke Farm, which grows pears and apples too, the cherry-picking experience offers you the choice of numerous varieties, which differ according to the season.

Pick and Pay for your Ruby Treats

After paying a R30 entrance fee per person (free for children under five years), you will receive a container, which you are welcome to fill to the brim with these delicious ruby-tinged beauties.

Between picking, take time out to explore the picturesque orchards and, when you’re done, have your container weighed (cherries cost R60 per kilogram). Please bring cash because there are no credit card facilities available on the farm!

Make a day of it by packing a picnic or bringing along meat to braai – there’s no better way to spend a summer’s day than enjoying the “fruits of your labour” under the cool shade of a pine tree. It gets pretty windy down Ceres way, so remember to bring a warm jersey or windbreaker.

The farm is open every day (except 25 December) throughout the season from 8.30am to 4pm.

    I was there last year with my family and friends..we loved it. The drive was beautiful…my childhood imagination of the Ceres valley was just as I had pictured it…used to often sip on Ceres Juices for school lunch and the back of the box read..”Nestled in the mountains….” I cant remember the rest, so that is how I always pictured it be. Enjoy and eat a few cherries for me.

    Hou die steeltjies aan – hulle hou langer so. En bring “toe” skoene (die dorings is regtig erg).

    And don’t forget closed shoes because of all the “dubbeltjie” thorns!
