Adjacent to the village of Tondeldoos, Mpumalanga at an altitude of over 1800 m, Eddie and Moira Price, with their two sons have been farming with cattle on naturally occurring veld grass and highland stream water since 2005 with as little intervention as possible.
The cattle are predominantly Bonsmara and Drakensberger crossed with Bovelder.
The cattle are free to roam extensively and with an altitude variation on the farm of 300 m they get plenty of exercise and grow slowly, developing a tasty marbled beef.
During summer months veld grass is cut and baled and used to supplement winter feeding only when required. No grains or bought feed is utilised although salt licks are provided.
NB - Orders for Tinderbox biltong & droëwors closes on a Sunday Afternoon (20 OCTOBER @ 4 PM for delivery on 25 October (JHB) & 26 October (PTA).
