The Constantia Legacy

Constantia Cherry Farm is a third generation Cherry Farm established by the late Kempen Higgo and his wife Adrie Higgo in the heart of the Eastern Free State, Clocolan, South Africa.

The farm is family owned and run by Gerrit and Gwynet Higgo. It comprises of cherry farming, a Holstein Stud Dairy, Constantia Cherry Farm Stall and farming concern. 

The first cherry tree tress were planted in 1953 after Kempen discovered a single flourishing cherry tree on the farm. His father objected to the idea of establishing an orchard and Kempen decided to quietly pant several trees at night. The initial few trees have over the last two generations been nutured and grown to vast orchards, generating a large annual harvest of cherries.

Today Constantia Cherries is a well recognised brand on South African Supermarket shelves. Constantia currently supplies cherries to many South African chain stores and also exports fresh cherries to a number of European Markets
