We are a family run Organic Farm in the heart of Muldersdrift. Our names are Laiken and Jason Cullen. We are not your typical farmers. Laiken is a qualified school teacher, with a background in publication editing and Jason is a 3D animation director having done work for the TV commercial industry. Hence it is our backgrounds and drive for excellence that make us such unconventional farmers. Using our organisational and marketing skills, with a passion for learning, we started our boutique organic farm. 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.
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.
We run our farm on biodynamic principles. We have chickens for pest control and manure, fish in our dam that enhances our water which in turn feeds our Pomegranate trees, a “bat hotel” for our local bats and last but not least we have 4 beehives just for our Pomegranate blossoms.
Consumers are becoming more aware of their health and eating correctly. There is a definite swing toward the organic market. Here At Ganico Boutique Farm we pride ourselves on being locally sustainable and farming on a small scale, which enables us to nurture the trees individually, supplying the best possible Organic Pomegranates.
