BWSA is a company specializing in blueberry fruit export. The company has a team of inhouse technical advisors that support blueberry growers situated in Southern Africa. Blueberries are a sensitive crop that required a good quality, well designed irrigation system for high yield performance.
Cherry Irrigation has done work for most of the growers in our group and known as being a leader in quality intensive irrigation design and installation in Southern Africa. Our experience at grower operations, has been of high quality with good service. Growers can focus on the job of growing without concern that the irrigation system is capable of carrying out its function.
Cherry Irrigation has also assisted several growers who have cut corners and have needed to have their systems audited and redesigned.
They are willing to collaborate with other suppliers to ensure a successful project for the grower. In the odd event there have been post-installation challenges, Cherry Irrigation have quickly responded to rectify the situation with the grower. Furthermore, they put in a concerted effort to remain at the forefront of irrigation technology.
It is for these reasons we comfortably recommend Cherry Irrigation as a potential partner for new growers joining the grower group.
Denau Boerdery has been using the services of Cherry Irrigation for four years and we would highly recommend them to any business in need of irrigation specialists.
They always deliver a professional as well as expert service. They are always prepared to be flexible with their suggestions and ensure that it is the right fit for our business. Lastly they ensure that all the installations is in perfect working order before signing off on the work.
Cherry Irrigation has been much more than just a supplier of irrigation equipment. They are a real partner through all weathers and challenges the farming business can bring about.
We have been working together on various projects for several years and there is never a day that Charles and his team do not have the right solution at hand.
Our flagship project in the Namib desert has particularly benefitted from Cherry’s expertise. We upgraded from a simple A B system to a fully automated fifty-valve system in a tailormade irrigation container.
From planning and designing, implementation, on-the-ground and hands-on support and training, to innovation and new opportunities, Cherry always goes the extra mile to support the business every step of the way.
Cherry Irrigation makes it their business to fully understand yours, and by doing so they can be innovative and agile with their plans and solutions. Fruit farming is a constantly changing and evolving landscape. Cherry Irrigation understands this, and through their years of experience and depth of knowledge of the fruit industry, they can provide sound and sustainable advice. They add value to our business from the planning phase through to their after-installation service and support, and that is a quality I appreciate and value in a service provider. ─ Ernst Heydenrych, Monteith Trust
My name is Scott Cully and I am the general manager of Fall Creek Farm and Nursery, headquartered in Lowell in Oregon in the USA. Over the past three years, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to be offered an expat assignment in the Western Cape of South Africa. My role there was to help manage the company’s significant investment and build our newest plant nursery subsidiary in Paarl.
While I was in South Africa, I was blessed to meet Charles Cherry and the Cherry Irrigation team. I have built farms and nurseries all over the world, and I want to share with you the comfort I experienced in partnering with Cherry Irrigation to be both the designer and installer of all the irrigation systems required to operate our new nursery facility in South Africa. In my experience, it is not normal to find a company and team with this level of talent, expertise and commitment to both the project and the client. From the beginning of our relationship, I felt that Cherry had my back. I have since returned to Oregon (sad) but I am certain that the Cherry team will be there through thick and thin to support our new operations teams in South Africa.
I am pleased with my decision to utilise their services and will absolutely do so again if offered the opportunity.
Cherry irrigation has been our irrigation, installation and water conservation planners since 2014. They have designed and installed all the irrigation and fertigation equipment for several projects:
We can highly recommend Charles Cherry and his team for any project.
We have been a client of Cherry Irrigation since 2020. They were recommended by another client and we have not been disappointed with their products or service ever since.
Even though we are located very far from their main base in Grabouw, we have received excellent service and courtesy visits, and their project completion times were on schedule. Apart from them using high-quality products and materials, we were specifically impressed by the pumphouse setup and configurations they were able to offer.
We highly recommend them for any irrigation systems or projects.
We’ve worked with Cherry Irrigation since 2015, planning our farm from scratch in areas of surveillance, block layouts, fully equipped fertigation room and pump station. Their technical skills and knowledge will compete with the best in the market.
All material and equipment installed are of high quality and reliable. After-sales service, in our trade, is very important and Cherry Irrigation also did not fail our farming project in this area.
Thank you for your work and support.
We do business with Cherry Irrigation not just because their products are some of the best, but also for the quality service they provide before and after sales.
We will recommend Cherry Irrigation to any farmer who wants to take their business to the next level.
At Mudiwa Farming, we have worked with Cherry Irrigation for a number of years on our blueberry operation. The Cherry crew members are very knowledgeable and do their level best to keep up to date with the latest innovations in the irrigation field.
Cherry Irrigation has done its best to enable the success of Mudiwa Farming over the years and is always just a phone call away. If you want irrigation designs for specialty and plantation crops, we will not hesitate to recommend their services.
Tzaneen Blueberries has been working with Cherry Irrigation for a number of years and our experience has been very positive. We have worked with a number of irrigation companies over the years and none have come close to the technical expertise that we have experienced from Cherry Irrigation.
In addition, Cherry Irrigation’s back-up and post-installation service has been outstanding, bearing in mind that they are based in the Western Cape and we are at the other end of the country in Limpopo. There have been a number of times when we have had a serious problem and Cherry Irrigation has flown up one of their technicians or senior designer Hilgard Rossouw, regardless of whether it was over a weekend or not.
Cherry Irrigation has done further installations for Tzaneen Blueberries and the quality of the work has been excellent. Where there have been tight timelines, the technicians once again put in the hours over a weekend.
For anyone considering using Cherry Irrigation, we highly recommend them. Feel free to contact us at Tzaneen Blueberries for further information.
