Our Nurseries

Nurseries

The Westfalia Fruit Group operates or is affiliated with many nurseries around the world. These nurseries are fully accredited and recognised for the provision of good-quality avocado and other trees.

In South Africa, Westfalia’s two nurseries are situated in Modjadjiskloof near Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, 400km north-east of Johannesburg. They supply top-quality clonal ​rootstock avocado trees for use in the Group’s own orchards as well as for sale to customers in the agricultural sector, both nationally and internationally. Westfalia’s nurseries have the unique advantage of utilising the cutting-edge scion and rootstock development programme of Westfalia Technological Services.

Orchards

Westfalia Fruit operates various avocado estates located on different continents. In southern Africa, farms are situated in the Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, and in Mozambique. The Group also has farming assets in North America and Latin America, as well as in Portugal.​ ​​​​​The geographical spread of operations provides Westfalia with the ability to stretch its production season over a longer period of time – an important factor in the supply of fruit for 12 months of the year. Growing fruit in different areas also minimises climatic risks.

Farming at Westfalia Fruit is undertaken using the most modern and sustainable horticultural practices and involves orchard management, pest and disease control, the most suitable rootstocks and cultivars, and post-harvest fruit-management procedures. The farms​ are fully compliant with the applicable local and international certification schemes.
