THE STORY OF

Ganico

WE ARE CRAZY!
...there...we said it.

WE ARE FIRST GENERATION FARMERS. (Translation: We have no idea what we are doing so we wing it with style) So here our background: We are a family-run Organic Estate in the heart of Muldersdrift, South Africa. Our names are Laiken and Jason Cullen. After experiencing how difficult it was to obtain organically grown produce, and when we discovered the well documented health benefits of pomegranates, we decided to turn some fallow land into a farm, supplying the market not with just another fruit, but a Superfruit – organically grown Pomegranates.

In 2018, we realized we were doing it all wrong. So we decided to imitate nature and transform our monoculture farm into a biodiverse food forest. Our end goal? Eventually, wherever you walk on our estate, you will find something edible growing.

We are Certified Organic by EcoCert with the European standard of Organic practices. We maintain the highest standards to ensure we receive our certificate on time, annually. Our soil, water and leaves are regularly tested and our soil organically fed to ensure our trees are well looked after and the fruit is of the highest quality – nourishing as nature intended.

Farming is a roller coaster of ups and downs…but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

WHAT MAKES GANICO SPECIAL?
We are currently transforming our orchard into a biodiverse food forest. We use ZERO pesticides and chemicals because we care where our food comes from.

Our goal as a farm is to help people understand where their food comes from and why it matters. What we eat has a direct bearing to our health and wellbeing. So we made it our priority to grow and source the best quality food for our family and yours.
