Twilight Strawberry Picking at Beerenberg Farm no longer available.
For Valentine's Day, my partner and I drove up into the Hills, just passed the delightful popular strip of Hahndorf, to partake in Twilight Strawberry Picking at Beerenberg Farm. It was absolutely divine, we were given glasses of Somerled champagne upon arrival and containers to pop our strawberries into that we pick ourselves. Soft smooth music was heard via the iPod speakers as we wandered around picking delectable strawberries and taking in the views.
As we left with our strawberries in hand, we were asked to leave a Valentine's note on their Valentine wall; my partner wrote: "call a rose by any other name and it will still smell just as sweet". The lady at the shop was delighted.
Valentine's night was the last night to experience Twilight Strawberry Picking but you can still go during the day up until May. They are open 9am-5pm Mon-Sun, with picking available 9am-4:15pm. Strawberry picking season is from October through to May.
For only $3 per person, with children 13 years and under free, why wouldn't you make the 35 minute drive up the South-Eastern Freeway. I had the most wonderful time, the service was immaculate and the strawberries were amazing. Head to www.beerenberg.com.au for more information.
