To help support local businesses, we will be featuring a local business each week in our series ‘Local in the spotlight’. This week though we’re focusing on some of our favourite wine farms.
While the lockdown prevents us from spending a lazy afternoon at our favourite wine farm, drinking their delicious wines, wine farms have come up with ways to serve us still, and help support their businesses in these trying times.
Have a look at the offerings of these popular wine farms:
Boschendal has opened a pop-up farm shop where customers can buy a selection of their products – vegetables from their garden, dairy products, or bakery and butchery items. They’ve also created 6 “Taste Boschendal Pre-Ordered Boxes” and ready made meals that are prepared by their chefs. Every day of the week has a box with a different set of produce, consisting of their butchery meat, free range farm eggs and bread from their bakery.
Tokara’s famous Delicatessen is open to provide you with their wide range of products. Choose from their freshly baked bread, pastries or home-made biscuits and rusks. You can also enjoy their extra virgin olive oil, milk, eggs, cheese, charcuterie, sandwiches, coffee beans and end off your shopping with a hot take away coffee. Customers can also create a picnic at home, by ordering Tokara’s Picnic in a Box. It includes all the favourites: different cheeses, beverages, charcuterie, bread and olives.
Spier is offering delivery on a variety of ready-made meals, meat and eggs. Their meals range from beef lasagna and a BBQ-smoked brisket pie to delicious pasteis de nata and an apple and almond butter crumble. You are also able to buy a Farmer Angus Beef Box with a range of quality meat products.
The Bakery at Jordan has got your Saturday morning brunch covered: serving 2 people, their Brunch Box includes a 3 course breakfast with a bag of their famous coffee beans and is conveniently delivered straight to your door. Enjoy this experience, expertly curated by their chef. There is also a vegetarian option available.
Somerbosch is offering a wide selection of frozen meals, pasta, fish, meat, and poultry dishes, as well as desserts, soups and bread – all delivered to you. They have also made Sunday lunch a breeze – you can order their 3 course menu, which is geared to provide comfort and warmth in this cold weather. We’re especially looking forward to their date pudding with caramel sauce!
Babylonstoren’s Farm Shop is open daily, as is their online shop. There’s much to choose from: dairy products, meat, juices, freshly baked bread, and soups. They’ve also created a Seasonal Harvest Box, with a variety of vegetables, herbs and fruit. Since it’s seasonal, no box is the same, but is freshly picked by the team each week. Don’t forget about their luscious and incredibly scented beauty products – treat yourself or a friend with a range of candles, soaps, hand creams and body wash.
Many wine farms are taking wine orders and will deliver them once lockdown allows. Visit your favourite wine farm’s website and get your order in now!
