It’s time for olive harvesting to begin on the south side of the planet and the festivities have begun.
Make your way to the picturesque Swartland towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West for the annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival. The festival takes place this weekend May 5 and 6.
For your convenience there is return shuttle service from Cape Town. Also there is tractor service between each town, farm, and event. The first ride is free and subsequent lifts are R5 with proceeds going to charity.
The festival showcases the best in Riebeek Valley foods, wines, and olives. Check out the details at the festival website.
May the sun shine through your branches.
