Here we put together everything that will make you and your family happy farm explorers.  You will go home an expert – with arms full of good, local produce.


Every year in October, the Prins Albert Landbougenootskap hosts the Prince Albert Agricultural Show.  This is an event not to be missed – prize winning animals, good entertainment and delicious food.


The village of Prince Albert grew from the first farm, Queekvalleij, established by Zacharias and Dina de Beer at the foot of the Zwartberg in 1762 and still supports an active farming community.  Local farms yield produce of incredible quality.  In the fertile valleys tucked into the folds of the Swartberg, farms produce deciduous fruit for export, wine, olives and figs.  On the farms of the Great Karoo flocks of sheep and angora studs provide meat, wool and mohair.
