The Farm specializes in the production and packaging with minimal processing of vegetables and herbs. The ADA intervention includes the purchase of fertilizer (planting and water soluble), packaging inputs (boxes, string etc.), mulch, drip tape and chemicals. The intervention from ADA has enabled the business to increase production through the provision of production inputs. River Valley currently sells a large amount of its fresh produce through pack houses who are currently supplying to Pick n Pay and other retail stores. It also supplies eThekwini and Pietermaritzburg Fresh Produce Markets and other wholesaler and supermarkets including MF Produce, Direct Farm Connection, African Fruit Orchard (PMB), Aheers Wholesalers (Greytown), Aheers Supermarket (Greytown), Freshly Pick’d (PMB), Herbs by Rosemary (Westville), St. Ives Herbs (Kloof) and Honchos Chicken (coleslaw packs). Ten jobs have been created by the farm.
