The health benefits of this super-plant derive from their high content of minerals, antioxidants, vitamins A and C, amino acids as well as polysaccharides.
Recent medical studies have shown their effectiveness in management of type II diabetes, obesity and in decreasing low-density lipoprotein concentrations.
Due to its delicious flavour, it has been used by top chefs to produce gourmet dishes and is a staple in traditional Mexican cuisine.
Our farm is one of the country’s largest producers of prickly pear cactus and the only one that is certified organic.
We can supply any amount to:
- Processors of other health products
- Restaurants and grocers
- The general public
For cooking, pickling or eating raw, the nopal pads are only available from approximately November to April as this is when they are at the tender (young) stage. Any times outside of this, the pads are too thick and unsuitable for cooking. They are however, great for juicing and offer the same health benefits as eating the young pads.
- Please note that the above price is per kilo (not per pad), so if you wanted 2 kilos please order 2 items.
For orders over 5 kilos or as an ongoing arrangement, please email with request.
Due to the large volume of orders we now receive, we rarely can personally deliver orders. Aside from posting, it is encouraged that you pick up your order from one of our farmers markets. We are at several farmers markets locations every month and you are welcome to email us beforehand so your order is ready to collect when you arrive.
