Aloe Dale emerged out of a simple idea to grow as much of the food consumed by our household as we could, in a sustainable and organic manner – including some food for our horses, dogs and chickens.
Situated half-way between Pretoria and Johannesburg, we grow a wide variety of organic herbs, vegetables and fruit to supply chefs, caterers, restauranteurs and delicatessans who care, as much as we do, how the food they serve is grown. We continue to expand and diversify, growing all manner of unconventional varieties by special request.
We encourage small-scale, holistic, polycultural agronomy by supporting local, sustainable growers: from households who produce a small excess for which they would not otherwise have a market, to NGO-run organic agricultural programs. It is significant that 80% of these growers have on-site bee-hives, wormeries and composteries of note!
We are also expanding growing operations at our small-holding in KZN. Aside from the extra growing space, this will enable us to grow an even wider variety of produce over a longer growing season.
