This Is Who We Are
We at Earthfood Trading Company have a love for nature and through time cultivated a passion for farming. We started off with an avocado and litchi producing farm, Grysappel, and later expanded by acquiring a second farm, Letaba Drift. Our farms, Grysappel and Letaba Drift, are nested in the beautiful George’s Valley region that forms part of the Magoebaskloof Mountains in the Tzaneen region in the Limpopo province.
After becoming provisioned with avocado and litchi farming, we expanded firstly with granadilla orchids and later dragon fruit.
By diversifying we could provide our customers with not only avocados, which still remains our primary focus, but other delicious, fresh fruits from the farm.
Our aim in farming is not only to provide for ourselves, but also to empower other members of the community. We achieve this by sourcing other locally produced quality products for urban customers.
We believe in sustainable farming by applying new technology like our new, real time, water level monitoring irrigation system. This allows us to water more efficiently thus preserving this precious resource.
It is important to us to deliver good quality produce to our customers. This reflects in our GLOBALG.A.P. registration, which insures that we maintain high quality standards, ethical and environmentally friendly farming practices.
