With tractor rides, grape stomping and a delicious harvest feast, the jamboree on 28 and 29 January is the ideal excursion for the whole family.

Harvest festivals are an age-old tradition around the world and are held in gratitude for the bounty that Mother Nature bestows on farming communities.

Every ticket for the Delheim Harvest Festival includes a glass of mos (freshly pressed grape juice), a homemade Bretzel on arrival and the opportunity to pick and stomp grapes, take a tractor ride, enjoy live music and, of course, tuck into a splendid harvest feast.

The lunch spread caters for everyone with the dishes taking inspiration locally as well as from Germany, the Netherlands, and the Cape Malay tradition. It will be served at Delheim’s restaurant area, which has indoor and outdoor seating, a veranda, lush lawn and gorgeous views.
