ABOUT THE PIXIES GREEN PANTRY
The Green Pantry was born with a 2×4 greenhouse in the summer of 2015. We planted organic Herbs with the aim of selling to the local restaurants. We grew from there adding Raw Fynbos Honey and Extra Virgin Olive Oil to our products. Finding a fantastic supplier of Free Range Foods, we decided it was time to introduce a website and started offering month-end orders. Customers were delighted with our products and over the years we added more products, swopped some and learnt by experience as we moved forward. I was in my element, and then hard times hit.
We closed down temporarily for a while while I went off to the UK to do Care work. I did my training, got my certificate and worked for a year and then Covid hit and that was that! Was not able to return.
With a brand new website (thank you Jackie at Just-Inspired) and new name……The Pixies Green Pantry (registered name) is up and running again. We are a reliable food source and offer you quality Free Range Foods direct from the farm……..Pasture to Plate. ALL our Farm products are Grass Fed and we offer Certified Free Range Eggs. Now, I have tried eggs everywhere and in my opinion, we still have the best! No ‘fish meal’ smell, don’t have that awful after taste, the right colour and they are always fresh!
Our main farm supplier in George, has consolidated with their neighboring farmers and so we can now offer a wide range of Grass Fed Meats, Poultry and Dairy products.
Supporting the local farmers and small businesses is what we do. If you have products we may be interested in, please contact us.
We have now introduced Beef Primals to our list which come whole, fresh and vacuum sealed in KG portions. They are Grass and Grain Fed from the top suppliers in the country. Please note that when ordering, you will not always receive an exact kg as the meat is cut and then weighed.
For those of you who love FRESH FISH, we can offer you all the fish from the Green List……This means the fish species is not on the endangered list nor are the fishing methods used, harmful to the marine environment. The fish available each week will be hi-lighted. The fish is ordered in KG fillets, or whole. Please specify what you would like and I’m sure my supplier will be more than happy to meet your request. Orders must be in by a Thursday midday for collection on Friday from midday. Join our Whats.App group for updates/notices.
Please be aware that we do have many other products available but these are sold in Bulk so if you are in the catering industry or want to share with some friends to cut costs down, please contact us and let us know what you are looking for. Our products range from Pantry items, Bakery, frozen meats, seafood and Halal (list too big to post on website). These items are not free range or organic. We can do weekly orders if minimum order met.
If you would like to be added to our What’s.App Broadcast Group to receive Reminders, Fresh Fish List or any Specials, please contact us.
Lastly, I just need to explain to you that we do not carry stock on our premises. We are a small home based business and how we operate is as follows: We order from the supplier once we have your order/payment. We do have multiple suppliers and each supplier has a minimum order requirement that I must meet in order to make his journey worthwhile. This is the main reason we do month-end orders mostly plus there are high courier fees involved, especially the farm orders. We can of course do weekly or fortnightly for the Fish or Beef Primals, as long as I have met the required Rand value.
Dates to get your orders in by and when to collect will always be posted on our website, what’s.app group and our FB page.
We generally do not offer a delivery service as we are dealing with fresh and frozen produce mostly, but if you are in a jam and we can help for a small fee, we will do our best.
You know…….it’s easy and convenient to just pop down to the supermarkets or big chain store and contribute to the owners next holiday or new car……. but just a little planning and ordering from a small business, puts food on our table.
Please keep it local and support small businesses – Thank You, Baie Dankie, Namaste.
