On Sunday we went berry picking at Field Berry Farm, about 30minutes outside Joburg. What a wonderful way to spend a morning with family. You are given a little bucket upon arrival, and are then let loose in the berry fields to pick (and sample!) as many raspberries as you like. As city-dwellers, there is something very fulfilling in partaking in a farm-to-table process of picking your fruit in the fields, seeing where it comes from, the type of bushes it grows on, and how it tastes when you harvest it yourself. Plus, raspberries are delicious, super good for for you, and can easily be devoured by themselves, on cereal, in smoothies, or frozen for later.

When you arrive back at the farm house your bucket of berries is weighed and you pay for that in addition to your entry fee.
Tip: It gets really hot out in the fields so go early, take hats, cold water, and lather on the sunscreen.
