National Apricot Day

What does National Apricot Day mean to you? To us here at B & R Farms, it means celebrating all things apricot! Considering that we are one of the last commercial farms for Blenheim apricots in California, you can probably guess, that is a pretty big deal to us!!

A little history if you are unfamiliar, Blenheim’s were brought to California from England in the late 1800’s. They are named from the Blenheim Palace, which was the ancestral estate of the Churchill family in England.

Our Blenheim apricots are persnickety in nature, which is why we have such a short season, but those who know, know……… pick a Blenheim when it’s still has green shoulders and before you know it, you’ll have the best tasting, sweetest apricot you’ve ever sunk your teeth into.

To help you celebrate National Apricot Day, we will be offering our Golden Slice apricots at 20% off for 1 lb.& 4 lb. bags. Come by our store, or order online with code APRICOTS22
