Magoebaskloof will once again become a centre for all things berry at this year's Magoebaskloof Berry Festival 2016, taking place from 6 - 7 February. Visitors can pick their own berries at one of the participating farms, browse local products in the village market or take part in a range of other exciting activities in the area.

The Berry Festival promises activities that will keep the whole family busy. Parents can relax at one of the participating restaurants and take in the sights of Magoebaskloof and children will enjoy taking part in the festivals many competitions and learn how to pick berries.

The main focus of the festival is the picking of berries at the many working farms. Guests will take tours through the farms, searching out the extra special, extra delicious raspberries and blueberries and pick and eat their fill. The tours include one of the most beautiful gardens in the Magoebaskloof area, home to many rare and endangered birds. Learn about organic farming methods, including wormery and homemade compost. In addition to the freshly picked berries, participants can buy cordials, preserves and pickles, jams and vinegar. Punnets of strawberries will also be available to buy and take home.

Visitors will also be able to tour an organic cheese dairy farm and do a cheese tour. Explore the farm and taste and watch cheese being made in the traditional way. Cows are milked by hand and curds are stirred in a big copper cauldron over a fire. Children will be enthralled by the chickens, ducks and geese on the farm and there will be plenty of opportunity to stock up on organic cheese and dairy products.

The village market will be available to explore, with lots of quality local products on offer from fresh farm produce, second-hand books, homemade cakes, crafts and much more.
