Market gardening

‘Well Grown Food and Medicine Garden’  Is a small seasonal market garden where we work with nature in  our approach to farming and apply methods such as no tilling practices, crop rotation, biodiversity enhancement, ‘building’ soil through composting and mulching, cover crops, green manure techniques and NO chemicals.We sell vegetables, herbs and value-added products directly to customers. Our market garden plan is ever-evolving and based on what is most profitable, least labor intensive and most cost effective to produce. We consider ourselves extremely privileged to be able to cultivate our herbs and edible plants in the beautiful enclave of Hermitage at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, Swellendam.

“this is our story and thanks for taking the time. If you are a fellow plant person or market gardener (or aspire to be one), please feel free to get in touch.”
