THE ALOE FARM is conveniently situated on the busy R104 road in Hartebeespoortdam area near Pretoria in South Africa. It was acquired and aptly named by Andy de Wet of CND Nursery years ago as it would suit us perfectly as a growing farm. It has good water and a perfect frost-free climate for growing plants.
DE WET PLANT BREEDERS-The ALOE FARM is the home of De Wet Plant Breeders that does extensive breeding and research on water wise plants.
AMAZING GARDENS. The Aloe Farm has extensive gardens where we test our unique aloe, and other cultivars. These gardens are open to the public and include our BUSH GARDEN that is landscaped to attract wildlife and also demonstrate the great possibilities that exist for indigenous plants in the home and commercial garden.
Lassy Makhubela is our farm manager that controls a highly efficient staff, including Quinton Bean (Plant Breeding, Soil Mixes, Fertilization and Pesticides) & Ronald Simma (Retail Manager), Scorpion (Repairs & Maintenance). We also have several production teams, each headed by a dedicated professional team leader ensuring that the production runs smoothly and produces high quality plants for our commercial and retail customers.
The aloe gardens have now become a famous plant-lover and tourist attraction in the Hartbeespoort area that draws in visitors from far and wide to admire the gardens, photograph the plants and birds, and to admire and purchase unique plants for their gardens.
