FRIEDEWALD FARM

 
 

The story begins in 1883, when the Bunge family set sail from Germany, on board the Samson, bound for the sub tropical region of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. Upon arrival that year, the family founded Friedewald Farm, meaning “peaceful forests” in their native German. Together with the local Zulu people, Friedewald was transformed into an agricultural gem.
