Red Apple Farm Stall

Red Apple Farm Stall

The Red Apple Farm Stall is less than 30 kilometres from Port Alfred, in the Eastern Cape, and is set apart by the owner’s very real passion for South Africa as well as their commitment to reducing the carbon footprint that they and their customers leave behind. As a typical farm stall, The Red Apple offers plenty in the way of homemade goodies, but also serves delicious breakfasts and lunches and is an ideal day out for the family.

The Red Apple is open every day. From Monday to Friday, business hours are between 08h30 and 17h15. On weekends, they open at 09h00 and they close at 14h00.

The Farm Stall at The Red Apple has a huge variety of hunger-busters, homemade preserves, health foods and much more. Much of the stock is produced locally in order to cut back on unnecessary expense, be more eco-friendly and support the local community.

This is done with the aim of kick-starting local business and the rural area that surrounds The Red Apple. Therefore, each product is scored to indicate how far away they are produced. This gives visitors the opportunity to decide what products they will buy in support of this green initiative.

The Gift Shop has an extensive range of gifts and keepsakes, each of which is hand-picked by the owner. These range from goods for the home to gardening items and toys for children. Woodwork, decoupage, mosaics, art and African curios are all the order of the day for visitors looking for something special to take home with them.

The restaurant and coffee shop serve the coffee for which The Red Apple has gained acclaim in the area. In fact, The Red Apple claims that it sells some of the best coffee in the province. The coffee shop here sells filter coffee for visitors to take home as a reminder of their delicious Red Apple experience.

In addition, there are sweet treats and tasty snacks to accompany the coffee, as well as light meals and salads. The restaurant is fully licensed and serves anything from full breakfasts to delicious lunches, snacks, coffees and cakes. Local fare is always a popular choice, and The Red Apple does not disappoint, with its range of boboties, curries and savoury pancakes.
