Prince Albert Chronicles – January February 2023

Mar 23, 2023 | Article

Fig season is our favourite season and is in full swing – picking, peeling, drying, packing, jamming – it’s all happening at Weltevrede Fig Farm.

The blues hit Prince Albert in the best possible way early February in the form of the South African Blues Society.
After recording with talented local band Slam Jam, they headed to the Prince Albert Community Trust center to give the littlies some bluesy inspiration with a guitar handover and all-in jam session.

Olive harvest is getting close, visit O for Olive for an all-round olive farm experience to include a delightful tasting session, or just linger in the beautiful setting of Café O’s gorgeous gardens overlooking the glorious Swartberg Mountains, while enjoying tapas, platters or mouth-watering pizzas.
After a delectable lunch and tasting, be sure to browse the deli shop and stock up on olives, extra virgin olive oil, and tapenades.

On the olive topic, we are pleased and proud to lay claim to the famous yellow tin that is Prince Albert Olives’ extra virgin olive oil.
Enhancing kitchens and dinner tables locally and abroad, the Badenhorst family’s passion and love for all things olive and food is evident in the natural taste, aroma, and goodness every tin has to offer.
When next in our beautiful town, stock up straight from the farm or at one of our wonderful delis.

Yeeha to the night the Congo Cowboys rode into our charismatic Karoo town.
A fabulous Prince Albert hoedown was had by all, another incredible Kronkeldraai concert done and dusted as part of the Journey to Jazz build up.

PADS is a proudly Prince Albert initiative looking after the wellbeing of our town’s animals.
Offering tick and flea control, dipping services, medical advice, deworming, as well as sterilization projects, PADS is run by volunteers and relies solely on donations of money and materials.
Please open your hearts, get in touch, and see how you can help this worthy cause.

Gay’s Guernsey Dairy is where you will find the sweetest milk this side of the Swartberg.
Happy cows and super staff result in the yummiest cheese and yoghurt available to purchase at the plaas deli, along with homegrown produce and other lip-smacking lekker local items.
For a ‘behind the scenes’ peek, contact Gay’s Guernsey Dairy to book a tour, or just pop in and stock up on proudly Prince Albert produce.

We are excited to announce that short film, Die Spook van Doornkraal, produced by renowned local filmmaker Koos Roets, has been chosen as a finalist for the International Tourism Film Festival Africa awards.
We are all holding thumbs tightly for the winner announcements 5 May 2023.

To end our January/February Prince Albert Chronicles, a few images showcasing the beauty of our little Karoo dorp over the last few months.
