Planted in 2013 the orchard has one express purpose - to produce high quality fruit using modern methods of cultivation in parallel with the traditions laid on by hundred of years of Bulgarian agricultural practices. We've planted over 160,000 thriving trees spanning over 100 hectares comprising of 5 main cultures - apples, cherries, nectarines, apricots & grapes.
Staying true to our principals of freshness, cleanliness and environmental responsibility we have been certified by Global G.A.P. ensuring that our practices are compliant with international standards of production.
The whole length of each and every row has drip irrigation installed - we have a whopping 250 km of this watering system, vital for the healthy development of the trees during the dry summer months. Some 2000 cubic meters of water are circulated around the orchard every day.
We have an integrated system delivering the trees with exact quantities of high quality Italian fertilisers necessary for their healthy development, while preserving the surrounding natural habitat.
The entirety of the orchard is covered in netting preserving the trees from hail and sunburn during the summer. The total area covered spans over 1,000,000 sq.m. making our's one of largest such installations in the country.
We have made this investment in the quest to produce only high quality, long lasting, fruits for our customers who have come to expect from us this unrelenting drive for perfection.
