Rooipad Farms is located in the Northern Cape province of South Africa along the famous Orange River. The company specializes in the production of seedless table grapes from its four farms, Rooipad, Alkara, Oranjedal, Tierkop & Rooiduin. Each farm has its own pre-cooling and packing facilities.

Rooipad Farms is owned by Hannes Nel and Izak Nel who are 4th generation growers. Their focus has always been on producing fruit with a view to serving discerning clients worldwide. In 1997 we partnered with The Grape Company.

Rooipad 1893

The first farm to be acquired by the Nel family was Rooipad, which is located just west of the small town of Augrabies.

This is the main production unit, which until 1979 focused on livestock and raisin production. After the introduction of electricity in 1979 the farm was able to invest in irrigation and cooling facilities that allowed it to diversify into the production of table grapes.

Alkara 2006

The Alkara farm, adjacent to Rooipad, was purchased in 2006. Since its purchase much of the farm has been re-planted with new and exciting grape varieties from the worlds best breeding programmes. 

Oranjedal 1997

Oranjedal was the second farm to be acquired and is situated next to the Namibian border crossing of Onseepkans approximately 120km west of Rooipad.

This area is circa 10 days earlier with a significantly lower risk of rain, hail and other adverse climatic conditions.

Tierkop 2016

Tierkop was acquired in 2016.

The farm is located 34km north of Kakamas on the Riemvasmaak road, approxamitely 30km east of Rooipad.

Rooiduin 2020

Rooiduin is the youngest farm in the Nel Brother Group and was acquired in 2020.

The farm is located 16km from Rooipad between Kakamas and Augrabies.
