PRODUCTS

Our produce is grown in the cool, high valleys of the Western and Eastern Cape. In these areas the growing conditions are perfect. Cool mountain air slows down the ripening process in the orchards and fields, concentrating colours, flavours and aromas, while clean, pure mountain water ensures the highest standards in quality.
