Weltevrede Fig Farm is a working farm, offering a real Karoo farm experience. The farm offers visitors bird-watching, horse-riding, bushman painting viewing, fruit-picking and dining.
The Weltevrede valley lies 25 km from Prince Albert and is surrounded by the breath-taking Swartberg Mountains. The farmís main focus is on fig farming, and if you visit during the harvesting and drying season (from January to May), you can see how the figs are picked, processed and packed.
The owners also grow oranges and naartjies and rear ostrich. Guided hikes over the Swartberg Mountain from the farm into "Die Hell" are on offer during the cooler months.
