Why the name
The name Jumping Jackal just kind of stuck when our founders rescued a jackal from a snare that had been placed on the farm’s fence line.
After a brief recovery period, the jackal was released back into the wild, and can often be heard barking and howling as the sun sets into the early hours of twilight.
Over the past century, our family has grown everything from wine grapes to fruit trees, toiling under the hot summer heat of the Montagu sun. The scorching temperatures provide the perfect growing conditions for our chillies, intensifying their picante flavours and capsaicin levels. Living at the foot of the Langeberg mountains has given us a great appreciation for nature, and we practice sustainable farming methods and source recyclable packaging -to help keep our environmental impact low.
Each chilli cultivar is carefully selected and grown here on our farm, and every year we introduce new varieties onto the lands to experiment with. Creating different blends is always an exciting process, and we never know how the new product will taste until a year or more after it’s been produced.
