Prince Alfred's Hamlet Appelkoosfees 

It’s almost time to join us on the farm again! The annual 'Appelkoosfees' (Apricot Festival) is taking place on the picturesque Elandsrivier Farm, just outside Prince Alfred’s Hamlet.

Make it a family affair, hop onto our tractor carts and fill your baskets with fresh hand-picked apricots from our orchards.

This year's festival once again promises to delight young and old! You'll be spoilt for choice with delicious food and drink stalls, as well as local craft beer, cider and gin.  

This year’s selection of vintage tractors will showcase even more agricultural gems than last year.

Keep the kids busy at our dedicated kids-corner, where we'll have face painting, slippy-slides, jumping castles, soft serve ice cream, a toy stall and petting zoo.

Directions: When entering Prince Alfred's Hamlet, turn right in Sarel Cilliers street. Drive along Sarel Cilliers street and follow Elandsrivier signs as you turn left and fork and head straight ahead on a dirt road until you reach a black gate.

Limited tickets available to purchase at the gate

Apricot picking: R35/ kg
