Peppadew®Fresh Farms, located in the beautiful and scenic town of Morganville, New Jersey is licensed by Peppadew® International, South Africa and was established for the purpose of educating the U.S. consumer,chef and retailer on Peppadew® fruit; its unique story, great flavor and widespread applications.
The current site was selected for its similarity, in so many ways, to the summer home of J.S., who discovered the Peppadew fruit in Tzaneen, South Africa, just 15 years ago. The original location where Peppadew® fruit was discovered is on a tea plantation atop a lush green mountain. The home was originally owned by a world travelled botanist and, as such, many exotic flora were found on the property. The Peppadew® bush was one of those unique plants. And so the story of Peppadew® fruit began.
Peppadew® Fresh Farms, in New Jersey, was originally a flower farm growing pussy willow, quince and hydrangea. In earlier years, deciduous fruit, including Pears grew on the property, Although convenient to the NY Metro area, Philadelphia and Baltimore, the 15 acre farm is large enough to harness the quiet feel of that South Africa mountain top.
