Our Operations

The company gets its name from the Chiltern Hills in the UK where founder Johnny Mudge, grandfather of MD Justin Mudge, hailed from. Johnny’s two sons, Nigel and Desmond, are still involved with the running of the farm as members of the board of directors.

Today the more than 220 pome (apples and pears) and 80 blueberry producing hectares are spread across the original Chiltern Farm, and later acquired Longdown, Eriskay Gelukstroom, Poplar Grove and Morning Glory.

The company has recently built a world class, state of the art berry packhouse and has installed extensive solar plants across the precinct to sustainably power the packhouse, storage and generation units.

Chiltern Farms has an active replant program and over the last 10 years has replanted over 100 hectares of pome orchards. The company plans to, in the near future, to refit the pome packhouse and install more solar power capacity to keep on growing, packing and handling fruit sustainably.
