Litchi Harvest

Litchi harvest at Summerfields has begun. The farm workers are picking the fruit off the trees, sorting them from the branches and placing them in baskets. Keith Coetzee, lodge manager, drives the tractor which raises the men to the top of the trees. Guests are welcome to join and enjoy a day out on the farm.

The litchis may be bought at Summerfields for only R30 a punnet. We’ve had some rain the past few days, making for rather juicy and sweet litchis.

Perhaps he should become Farm Manager, owing to the incredibly good-looking hat.
