Must Visit: The Litchi Orchard In Salt Rock

Updated: Apr 19, 2022

At The Litchi Orchard everyone celebrates good food - the way in which it is produced and the people who produce it.

The Litchi Farm

Not only is The Litchi Orchard a functioning litchi farm, but it is a green haven of good food, décor and design. Over the years, it has become a meeting point for the North Coast community as well as a unique experience for visitors.

To complement the love for all things fresh and vibrant is our appreciation for the aesthetic – design and décor. The aim is to nurture and grow community spirit and appreciation for local food and fare.

From humble beginnings as a Wholesale Nursery in the middle of over 300 Litchi trees, to the rustic early Farmers' Markets, our Litchi Orchard community has grown into a collective of passionate food, home & lifestyle small business owners.

This is a community of local talent and creativity.

The Litchi Orchard Farm in Salt Rock Ballito is a family-owned and operated business, which has been in operation since 1992. The farm grows a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs, which are sold fresh from the farm gate. They also have a deli on-site where they prepare home-cooked meals with the fresh produce grown on the farm. The Litchi Orchard Farm is open 7 days a week from 8 am to 5 pm and offers a unique shopping experience for those who love fresh, locally grown produce.

The farm prides itself on using sustainable farming practices and being environmentally friendly. All of the produce is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and the farm is powered by renewable energy. The Litchi Orchard Farm is a great place to buy fresh, healthy food that has been grown in a sustainable way.

The Litchi Orchard Market

The Litchi Orchard is home to the new mid-month Maker’s Market and the seasonal Orchard Nights events – but now additionally offers a range of food & lifestyle shops and eateries.

The wholesale nursery of old is long gone but in its place is the verdant newly improved Muddy Boots Garden Centre.

Come and explore the treasured Litchi Orchard offerings and meet the dynamic faces behind the cogs.
