Apricots-are-ready-Nov2013.jpg Our APRICOTS are READY.
By: Tom Brown   (2013-11-27)


Do you enjoy eating and cooking with apricots? making Jams? Chutneys? Preserves? Purees? Then you will know that Bulida apricots, with their lovely traditional sweet/tart flavour, are absolutely ideal for bottling, freezing and for use in sauces and general cooking.


Our fruit, now at a fully grown semi-ripe stage, is ready for picking and dispatching.


So, if you live in the western Cape, are a friend of our farm and want some of our apricots then act quickly and order right away; we will especially pick and pack 4kg cartons and get them to you.


Our special price to friends of JackyBird Farms will be:

Apricots          @ R12.90/kg   = R 51.60 for about 4.0 kilograms net wt., plus

Delivery          @ R28.40/ctn  = R 28.40 to most places in the south western Cape (ZA) [discounted for more than one carton]

Total                                          = R 80.00 per carton (= R 20.00 per kg, delivered to you).


(Compare: PnP currently offers only 750gr of apricots on line for R29.99; i.e. R40.00/Kg).


How to order!

·       Proceed to order; click here to go to the Product page. Select the item "Bulida apricots" under ‘Farm Gate Specials’ at the top of the Product page, key in how many cartons you want (maximum three cartons per customer).

·       Take advantage and also order olives and olive oil for delivery at the same time

·      Then click “go to checkout” at the bottom of the Product page, input your delivery details and click “confirm your provisional order”.  

·       I will then send you a quote/invoice and provide bank account details for you to make payment. We will then contact you and arrange for d elivery to follow.


Note that we have only limited handling capacity in the new pack house so orders will be dealt with on a ‘first come first served’ basis.


The apricots will be hand-picked and selected for size and quality when dispatched. By buying JackyBird Farm apricots directly from us you will get our top quality and best prices. Sizes of individual fruits will obviously vary but typically range between 35mm and 50mm.


Pick for yourself?

Lastly; if you and your family would like to come to the farm to pick some apricots for yourself, then contact me here, let me know what you may have in mind and we will make a suitable arrangement for you to visit the farm when the time is right.


Take advantage of this special seasonal opportunity and really benefit from having “a farm in your life”.
