Strawberry Picking At Beerenberg Farm

The Beerenberg Farm in South Australia’s Hahndorf is something that the City Lane had no idea about until we found ourselves in South Australia. We were aware of the brand, with their tasty preserves and sauces being available across Australia and even overseas, but had no idea that there was a massive strawberry farm that was open to the public. Being lovers of all kinds of berries, we were keen to head out to the farm and have a go at picking some strawberries.

Beerenberg is a family run business, operated by the 6th generation of the Paech family who immigrated to this part of the Adelaide Hills way back in 1839! All the produce found in Beerenberg products in grown on the farm and we were impressed by the fact that everything is allowed to ripen on the vine before being picked, rejecting the far too common practice of semi-ripe picking which does occur in the industry.

As far as the strawberry picking goes, it’s a very straight forward process. You go to the farm shop, grab an empty punnet or two and then head out to the farm next to the shop to search for strawberries. Once your punnet is full, you head back inside and pay by weight.

We’d never been strawberry picking before and really enjoyed the activity. The farm is huge so there’s no shortage of strawberries and it’s a really family friendly activity – there were loads of families around when we visited.

We’ve never seen strawberries so red and large before. We thought we knew what good strawberries tasted like, but the flavour of these things was phenomenal.

The farm shop also has the complete range of Beerenberg products available to purchase, including some products which aren’t available at the supermarkets.

Although the Beerenberg Farm shop is open every day except Christmas day, strawberry picking is seasonal and runs from November through to April. We thoroughly enjoyed strawberry picking at Beerenberg Farm and highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in the Adelaide Hills

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
