Our family run business is excited to offer the tastiest of Organic Delights; tree-ripened apricots, apricot-based preserves and a variety of preservative-free dried fruits..
Our fresh organic apricots are ripened on the tree, building up the sugars and flavours that make them taste as apricots should (available mid-December to mid-January).
This fruit goes into our range of apricot-based preserves; classic apricot jam, apricot and quince jam, delicious dessert sauce, sweet chutney and spicy kasundi. Very ripe fruit is put to good use, dried in the sun without preservatives, creating healthy treats that are also suitable for sulphite-sensitive kids and allergy sufferers. Our delicious dried apricots won 3rd place at the Melbourne show and we have just had feedback from a large on line company who has been operating for 30 years. There comment was "We LOVE your apricots and think they are the best we've ever tasted - seriously!"
We also dry other fruits, sourced from orchards in northern Victoria that share the organic food ethos and each with their own unique flavours. These include Peaches, Nectarines, Apples, Pears, Plums and sultana's. A selection of products are available from the Greater Shepparton Visitor Centre and most products are also available on www.farmhousedirect.com.au
15th December to 14th January: Tuesdays and Thursdays 10.00am-12. and 4.00pm-6.00pm, or by appointment.
