Laiken and Jason Cullen are first generation farmers in Muldersdrift. Their beautiful farm Ganico is just across the road from Garden World nursery and they grow the finest pomegranates and an exciting array of seasonal produce.

It’s the height of lemon season so they are opening the farm to the public, enabling people to pick their own luscious Lisbon lemons and other produce.

It is a fun outdoor activity where the whole family can get back to nature and pick their own food and learn about organic farming.
