Commercial Horticultural Experience

Radville Farms Ltd has 25 years of organisational and operational experience in the production, processing and export of fruits and vegetables from The Gambia. The company currently owns and operates three separate conventional farming units totalling 300 hectares and one fully EU certified farm of 50 hectares. Mango is the single crop in the fruit category that continues to be expanded. 

At Tubakuta, the total area under mango production is 150 hectares with 40,000 mango trees of leading commercial varieties destined for the export markets; there are plans to double the hectarage under mangoes in the next three years.

Radville Farms has its own nursery for mangoes at Tubakuta; the centre has the capacity to produce 20,000 grafted mango seedlings. In its farming and production practices, Radville Farms set out itself to achieve high standards laid out in the “natures Choice Audit”, despite the challenges presented by being situated in a developing country like The Gambia.

  • Rational use of pesticides
  • Rational use of fertilisers
  • Pollution control
  • Human health
  • Efficient use of energy
  • Recycling 
  • Conservation
