About Our Farm

The Georgian Berry Ltd.  was formed in August 2017 by three female partners to start an organic berry farming.

With the help of the Ministry of Agriculture and in the framework of the United Agroproject, within the Plant the Future program, the Agency co-financed the purchase of seedlings and installation of the irrigation system on a land of 7 hectares in Kvemo Kartli region (Marneuli rayon, village Akhlomakhmudlo).

In the framework of the United Agroproject, the Program AMMAR (Agriculture Modernization, Market Access and Resilience) co-financed acquisition of a tractor with implements for various land works.

Another state assistance that our farm received was under the Ministry of Economics and Sustainable Development of Georgia, in the framework of Micro and Small Business Support (Enterprise Georgia) that co-financed the purchase of a 25 square meter cold storage facility that can accommodate 10 tons of fruit.

We would like to express our gratitude to the state for their generous support and also to any individual who has contributed to the establishment of our farm.

Our Harvest

At the moment, we grow three varieties of raspberries Killarney, Nova, and Caroline, and two of blackberries – Chester and Triple Crown.  This year, we expect to have average 15- 20 tons of raspberries and blackberries each. The plants will reach full maturity next year which will double the berry yield.

Farm Location

Our farm is located in Kvemo Kartli, village Akhlomakhmudlo, the southern part of Georgia. The agricultural area of Kvemo Kartli has a semi-arid steppe climate because of low precipitation of annual 500mm. Season vary form warm to hot summers and cool to very cold winters. Summer nighttime’s comparatively low temperature makes possible for to chill, which prevents berries from the damage caused by the extremely high temperature.

Our Facilities

The farm facility includes a building of 124 m2, with a 25m2 cold storage room in it that accommodates 10 tons of fruit. Also, there is a dripping irrigation system installed throughout the entire land.

Farm Machinery

A tractor with harrow, mulching, and an automatic fertilizer sprinkler attachments are in our farm possession. To maintain the high qualities of berries and comply to the requirements of the organic farming standards, all other works are done manually, including harvesting.

Our Nursery

The Georgian Berry Ltd has certified nursery that grows and sells blackberry (triple crown) plants. The Agricultural and Rural Development Agency included our nursery into the list of certified companies which allows the beneficiaries of Plant the Future program, purchase blackberry plants from our nursery.

Organic Production

We believe that organic agriculture is one of the most important aspects in the country’s environmental, social, and economic development today. We are determined and dedicated to pioneering it by sharing all our knowledge and practices for convincing and encouraging more farmers to transition their lands into organic.

In May 2019, the Georgian Berry was awarded an organic certificate issued by IFOAM/Biocert International which allowed us to explore export opportunities and also enter the Georgian organic market in cooperation with the local distribution company Planta. During May-August, you can find our berries in  hypermarkets Goodwill and Carrefour.
