Shop and Butchery
At Desert Fruit we are committed to the best possible welfare of our employees. We do our best to ensure that we have healthy employees who benefit from and are committed to the farm’s growth.
Because we are situated 65km from the nearest town, we originally established and staffed a farm shop to help employees purchase day-to-day staples. We have since expanded our product line to include fresh vegetables and meat – both of which are sold at “cost.”
Farm-grown vegetables provide a variety of choices for employees, and ensure that they have easy access to a healthier, balanced diet.
The on-site butchery slaughters and prepares our own livestock to supply fresh meat to employees and their families.
We are currently selling more than 1200kg of organic beef to our employees.
Transport to and from Karasburg (175km from the farm) is provided to employees at the end of each month.
