In 2015 PHC ventured into a partnership with a fruit acquirement business, to supply out of season fruit to a premier supermarket chain. This venture was not successful, but the growing, packing and marketing skills acquired were sufficient to pursue this line and in 2016, PHC began marketing its own berry fruit under the “Garden of Eden” brand. The brand has been hugely successful and we have become the premium export brand to the Middle-and Far-East during the September to November period. PHC’s aim is to export 60% of its production.

Having fruit growing farms in 3 different micro- climatic locations allows PHC to produce fruit year-round.

Brandwag Farm

Brandwag Farm at 10m above sea level, with a typical dry Mediterranean climate, produces volumes of quality fruit during the main export season of September to November and then reasonable volumes of out of season fruit from March to June.

Groeneweide Farm

Groeneweide Farm, nestled up against the Outeniqua Mountains at 170m elevation, is a much cooler location, producing the finest quality fruit in the country. Production is later than Brandwag, but fruit quality in the summer months is amazing and Monterey can be harvested up till March and San Andreas and Albion right through to the following seasons normal harvest period.

Waboomskraal Farm

Waboomskraal Farm, at an elevation of 700m has the coolest winter and hottest and driest summer climate. It is primarily a strawberry bare root nursery, but when plants that are used for runner production are allowed to fruit after runner harvest, they produce large, sweet out of season fruit for the local market when there is no competition.
