Hillcrest Berries, Stellenbosch

Blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and tayberries are available for purchase at Hillcrest Berries. However, Hillcrest does not open their orchards to the public because damage to the new shoots could compromise future crops. Nevertheless, it makes a great addition to your fruit and flowers itinerary.
