Kuiper-Family.jpg

 

Henri and Ghani Kuiper moved to Elgin from Johannesburg in the early 70s, where they bought a farm (Bergendal) and started a new life with their children – the youngest being their naughty blue-eyed boy Adrian. Adrian then married Jean (a farm girl from Clanwilliam) and together they bought the neighbouring farm (Rosenhof).

Today these farms are one – Rosenhof Farm.

Adrian after his cricketing career eventually settled back on the farm to run the fruit, free-range chickens and raspberries. Jean after ended her career as a food-scientist started a rose growing business and now runs a bio-control company (RealIPM).

Adrian and Jean have three children – Clare, Sarah and Paul. 

Clare lives on the farm with Richard, overseeing her vegetables and wellness business. Sarah is an architect currently working and living in Johannesburg, and Paul also lives on the farm working for RealIPM, setting up an apple-tree nursery, and giving Adrian a helping hand on the farm.
