Mac-Eden Estate (Pty) Ltd
The dream to leave the busy city life for a quality life on the South Coast of KZN was made a reality in 2005 for Terry and Jean Dore – founders of Mac-Eden Estate. This beautiful 42 hectare farm with approximately 8400 macadamia trees of various Hawaiian varieties stole their hearts with its evergreen trees, ferns and gentle streams of water – their precious piece of macadamia eden…hence the name Mac-Eden Estate was born.
The family run macadamia nut farm and processing facility is located on the beautiful and luscious South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. With exceptional rainfalls, rich soils and ideal climate conditions for growing macadamia’s, Mac-Eden produces outstanding, export quality, macadamia nuts.
Committed to the growth and development of the macadamia industry Mac-Eden has positioned itself as a privately owned producer, processor and supplier of premium quality macadamia kernel to both international and local markets. With a capacity to process 900 – 1000 tonnes of nut-in-shell per annum, Mac-Eden extends its branches to include other professional like-minded farmers to achieve our maximum throughput.
What does Mac-Eden offer you?
Each farmer is paid for his own quality of nut – there is no mixing or averaging out of crackout results – only your actual crackout is calculated.
As members of SAMAC, we encourage our farmers to excercise good orchard management and to follow environmentally friendly and sustainable farming practices. This results in better quality crops and payouts.
Mac-Eden is small enough to interact with you on a personal level so as to establish trust and a long-term mutual friendship/partnership. You can arrange to watch your nuts being processed on the day should you so choose.
Our farmers have benefitted from innovative and lucrative cash payment schemes designed by farmers… for farmers. We understand the importance of cash-flow with up to 50% cash payments being paid upfront on delivery!
Because Mac-Eden is family owned, we are quick and flexible to maximise on market opportunities presented and to fill niche markets requiring specialised packaging and/or product.
Completely sold out for 10 consecutive years! This means we have well established international clients, committed to Mac-Eden for exactly the same principles of personal relationships, top quality product, integrity and competitive pricing.
