Calvinia Vleis is a family owned business that had its beginning in 1983 when Izak van Niekerk, who was a young farmer at that stage, decided to buy a local business in Calvinia called Calvinia Slagters. Together with his parents, Hugo and Sella, they built a business that today, more than 35 years later, has branches in Strand, Bellville, Kuilsriver and Calvinia. The butcheries sells lambs that are slaughtered at our own abattoir, which is situated just outside of Calvinia. The abattoir also supplies wholesalers, retailers and butcheries all over South Africa
We are very proud of our product which has been rated “Best lamb, the Hantam Lamb,” in South Africa in a recent study.
