History & Culture
Fred Badenhorst was born and raised on Groot Constantia in the Cape. He and his son Hein continue a family farming tradition in the Prince Albert district of the Great Karoo. Prince Albert is well-known for its quality figs, pomegranates, grapes and other fruits. Fresh water, a dry, disease-free climate, ample summer heat and winter cold provide the ideal macro elements for fruit and olive growing. The orchards are managed by Essie Esterhuizen and his team, and the harvested fruit is processed in a state-of-the-art mill. Available on the farm and in stores.
