Yukon Farms Tshakhuma (YFT) in the sub-tropical Limpopo Province forms a core part of our avocado production. Originally wholly owned by The Tshakhuma Trust, The Unlimited Group entered into a long-term partnership as commercial partners with The Tshakhuma Trust in 2010 and we currently rent more than half of The Trust’s farms.
Our aim was to assist in establishing sound management and marketing channels for their products to local and international markets. Central to this management is the training of community members to become farm managers, pack house managers, supervisors and specialist general workers.
Today, YFT is thriving and as well as supplying The Unlimited Group with nuts and baby vegetables, the farm also produces some of the earliest avocados in South Africa.
Our success lies in the fact that we farm with nature and not against nature.’ — Gerrie du Preez, YFT General Manager
