The land that Redberry Farm is built on has a rich history. Redberry Farm was established in 2000 by Dave Cruse and Mark Miller, who purchased the land from a dairy farmer. An old mushroom pack house was later purchased, where strawberries are now processed, packed and distributed all over South Africa and to the Middle East.
The accommodation cottage is over 120 years old and was built by C.J. Langenhoven’s family, who originally lived in it. Additions have been made to extend and modernise the building, but the original structure is still intact, with its thick walls and Fisherman’s cottage shape. Several of the Langenhoven family graves have also been preserved on the premises.
A variety of trees were planted, and the garden was landscaped transforming the Kikuyu pastures into beautiful lawns and gardens. Over the years, the strawberry fields were extended and buildings renovated to create a flourishing tea garden and outdoor family experience.
Rows and rows of strawberries now cover the land, along with some raspberry and blueberry trials.
