About Blueberry Heights Farm
Blueberry Heights is a small farm in Limpopo growing delicious, healthy blueberries and kiwis in harmony with nature. We are an organically certified producer (Ecocert, “ZA-Bio-154”) of export quality fresh and frozen blueberries. Our orchards are located on Goedehoop Farm just outside Haenertsburg and about 30 km from Tzaneen.
Blueberries were first cultivated on the farm in 1995 and are grown to strict organic standards. This means that no industrial fertilisers are used and the farm makes use of natural composting and vermiculture techniques to improve the vitality of the blueberry bushes.
Blueberries are a superfood very high in antioxidants and proven to have numerous health benefits. They have been shown to have cancer fighting properties, strengthen blood vessels, enhance eyesight, improve memory and promote better brain and nerve functions. Not only are blueberries healthy but they are also an incredibly versatile ingredient that can add a touch of elegance to a variety of meals. They work very well in desserts, baking, salads, sauces and are great when paired with meats such as steak, pork and venison.
Recently we have launched a range of gourmet blueberry products made from our organic blueberries. These are only available at a few select stores in Limpopo and Johannesburg at this stage but we are working on getting them further afield soon. If you have any queries about the products please get in touch!
This season we are offering Pick Your Own Blueberries on weekends throughout the season. Read more about it here.
We are super excited to have picked our first ever gold kiwifruit this month on the farm! It’s been a project 4 years in the making and it’s great to finally see the fruit of all the hard work we’ve put in. Gold kiwis are relatively new in South Africa but we are already seeing a growing demand for the fruit. Gold kiwis have yellow flesh, smooth skin and a sweet tropical taste. They are preferred to the original green kiwi by many consumers around the world with a sweeter flavour and their ease of eating. The fruit is very high in vitamin C, fibre, vital minerals and anti-oxidants making it a super healthy food. The variety we grow is called Soreli and was developed in Italy. We work closely with the variety owners to ensure we produce the best quality fruit. Our kiwifruit is sold locally from the farm as well as in selected stores in Cape Town and Johannesburg. We also export our kiwis to Europe.
