Visiting Indonesia: Vin’s Berry Park in Bandung

19 January 20102 Comments

Last month we all went to Indonesia and we visited Bandung as well with Wilson’s family.

One of the places we checked out was Vin’s Berry Park (or Vin’s Berry Farm), where we managed to see (and pick for ourselves) raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and heaps others.

It’s located up on the mountains (ie. Lembang) and … the air and view from up there was just SO refreshing!

(Too bad when we were there, it drizzled a bit for a few minutes so we didn’t manage to check out all areas of the huge piece of land there)

[Really yummy fresh fruit juice!]

The friendly owner is a good friend of Wilson’s Dad’s, and he gave us a personal tour around his farm. And from the way he talked about agriculture, fruit planting, etc, I could really tell how knowledgeable and passionate he is about what he does and develops!

It sure was a great place to visit!

Oh btw, the kids were allowed to pull some carrots off the ground, … and look who got herself a baby carrot! *smile*

    Hi Janet,

    Thanks for leaving a comment! Checked out your blog, and my … your kids are sooo adorable! The activities you do with your kids are resourceful too! It’s really nice to ‘meet’ another blogger mommy who’s also into things that I myself am into too 🙂

    Anyway … yup, it’s in Lembang (Jalan Kolonel Masturi) and they said they organise educational tours too.

    Looks like fun! I am an American gal living in Bandung. I assume this place is up in Lembang? I homeschool our four kids and am always looking for fun places to take them.
