Apricot Picking At De Krans

It’s that time of the year again! Long summer days and the perfect time to pick seasonal fruit. De Krans Wine Cellar situated in the quaint town of Calitzdorp along the renowned Route 62 invites visitors to the year to join them in the annual apricot picking.

This fun family event will take place from 23 November until 7 December, where visitors will be able to pick and sample deliciously sweet, juicy Bulida apricots at the farm, every day (except Sundays) between 8am and 4pm.

A cost of R4.60/kg will be charged for the apricots and visitors are welcome to bring their own containers. Alternatively containers can be purchased at De Krans at a nominal fee.

As part of their annual fundraising projects, the Vygieshof Home for the Aged will offer visitors an appetizing braai on 23, 27 and 30 November, and then again on 4 and 7 December at De Krans. To avoid disappointment, as these meals are extremely popular, visitors are urged to book beforehand.

Situated in the picturesque Little Karoo town of Calitzdorp, De Krans is home to some of South Africa’s award-winning ports. Visitors to the farm are invited to taste these ports as well as their value-for-money wines within the range.
