With over three decades of experience in cultivating our succulent table grapes and citrus products, Suiderland Plase has evolved from owning one citrus farm to running our operations from independent fruit farms in the Western Cape region.

By continually supplying our clients with a choice of new and exclusive varieties of hard citrus, soft citrus and table grapes, the demand for our company’s products keeps rising, enabling us to increase availability to consistently and reliably supply clients with our produce. This also confirms our company’s position as an established leader in fruit farming.

Groenvlei
+

Groenvlei Estate was planted to 42 hectares of new and exciting tablegrape varieties. The Steenebrug Workers Trust was established to assist with the application to license boreholes on Groenvlei. A joint venture between the Steenebrug Workers Trust and Suiderland Plase was established to farm the citrus orchards. When the boreholes are licensed, the joint venture will become active. In the 2013/14 season, 20 hectares of citrus (Nadorcott) orchard was established. It is the intention to plant an additional 20 hectares of citrus and the Steenebrug Workers Trust will share in 35% of the profit in the joint venture. Suiderland Plase will fund the establishment of the orchards.
