Stellenbosch has taken a really fun approach to picking strawberries with amusing scarecrows, giant strawberries and antique tractors decorating its picking fields. There is nothing better than a freshly picked, luscious, ripe, sun warmed strawberry, only perhaps watching little ones feasting on them and their big red strawberry juice smiles.
