Product of the Week : Organic Lemons from Johannes
My name is Johannes and I grow organic oranges, lemons and mandarins for Nature & More in the East Cape province of South Africa. Our company grows organic citrus together with one other independent organic farmer. Thank you for buying our fruit!
My parents-in-law moved here in the mid 1990’s. In those years you could see the chemicals, applied to the citrus trees, hover over the valley like a fog. Some of the local doctors blame the chemicals for increasing allergic problems, high bronchitis rates and even considered it dangerous to pregnant women. We were threatening the beautiful valley that sustains us! We decided that someone had to start something in order for change to happen and so have started to convert our production to organic as from 2000.
