About Us

Driven by the people who eat our products

Our Story

HNP Boerdery was founded in 1989 by Hendri Pieterse on a farm in Krokodilsdrift, Grobersdal in the Limpopo province of South Africa. It was originally a Tobacco, Cotton, Wheat and Maize farm. The farm expanded to 5 different production units, with the first table grapes being established in 1995, and citrus in 2000. Since then our basket has expanded to over 350 hectares of table grapes and 500 hectares of citrus.

All table grape and citrus varieties are carefully selected for their marketability, climate suitability and timing.

We are a family owned business that values relationships with all our stakeholders, locally and abroad.
