Where does the name Beerenberg come from?
We use the name Beerenberg because it celebrates the German heritage of the Paech family who settled in Hahndorf, South Australia, in 1839. The name is German and means “Berry Hill”. This name is registered as a trademark in 1974. Our Managing Director is Anthony Paech who is one of the sixth generation of the Paech family at Hahndorf.
Where can I buy Beerenberg products?

Where is the farm?
Most of our products are made in our own kitchen on the Farm. The farm is 100 hectares on the outskirts of the small rural town of Hahndorf, which is 25km from Adelaide, in the Adelaide Hills. The area enjoys a high rainfall and cooler climate, very well suited to growing fruit and vegetables. Hahndorf is one of the most popular day tourist destinations in South Australia.
What fruit is grown on Beerenberg Farm?
Strawberries have been grown on Beerenberg Farm since 1969. Beerenberg is a supplier to the retail market in South Australia and a major supplier of “Pick your Own” strawberries as well as for our jam production. We also grow Satsuma Plums for jam and sauce as well as quinces for jelly. Cherries are grown for the fresh market. We also grow gherkins, chillies and rose petals.
Who do we sell to?
We have a large range of products that we sell to leading supermarkets and gourmet stores throughout Australia. An important percentage of our production is supplied in portion control packages in glass, aluminium foil and plastic packages for distribution to hotels, airlines and cruise lines throughout Australia and overseas. They are used in over 300 four and five star hotels throughout the Asia Pacific region.
