It was a dream come true when in 2011 Johan Becker and Jorrie Jordaan bought Edenburg, a farm in the Swartruggens area, where they established their now sought-after breeding programme. Their friendship and successful business partnership is based on the Christian values of honesty and sincerity and they take pride in acting in the best interests of the game industry. Right from the outset they saw quality, rather than quantity, as the deciding factor and set only the best genetics as the benchmark of their business.
Edenburg is a 1 100 ha game farm in breathtakingly beautiful bushveld and mountainous surrounds, ideally suited to diverse game species and boasting six earthen dams constructed to prevent soil erosion, some of them holding a variety of fish species. Aloes, sugar bush and trees such as the scented thorn, wild olive, tamboti, South African beech and karee abound in the mountain planes and thicket.
A complex system of camps for breeding purposes and a hunting camp is managed intensively just like any other business, and game breeding, eco-tourism as well as responsible and sustainable hunting are based on thorough planning, monitoring, control and improvement with Bengu Farm as software platform.
Edenburg is also part of another project to support nascent farmers, with the aim of empowering them with the necessary skills for the game industry and to become self-sufficient in the future - all challenges are met head-on and turned into opportunities.
Species found at Edenburg include heartwater normal, copper and coffee sprinkgbuck, normal, black and saddleback impala, nyala (a red nyala bull measures 29 ⅝ inches at 5 years old), sable (breeding bull Zorro measures 47 inches at 6 years), East Africa and Addo buffalo from Piet du Toit genetics, golden and Tuli gnu, normal and golden breeding bull oryx, Cape and King Cape eland, kudu, bushbuck, rhebuck and a variety of plains antelope.
Humbled by and appreciative of the God-given opportunity, Johan and Jorrie take pride in passionately striving to breed phenomenal quality game.
