Protea Farm – Bloom where you are planted

Protea Farm – Bloom where you are planted

Over the last 30 years, Protea Farm in the famous KOO valley has been synonymous with tractor excursions up the Langeberg Mountain, beautiful farm accommodation and delicious potjiekos. 

However, due to the icy cold winter climate, this tourism gem is also a working packhouse and fruit farm of 25 ha – consisting of pome and stone fruit, grown for the export market.

Owner, Pierre Burger is an inspiration to us at Delecta, and we are proud to have him as one of our producers. 

We recently caught up with Burger to find out more about their farming production in the Klein Karoo and his secret to success in the face of trying weather conditions.
