We love what we do, & we’re proud of our beef.

generations of beef producers

At Sparta we pride ourselves on the quality of beef we produce. We are a family-owned and operated business that can trace its agricultural roots back more than a century. We have always lived close to the land, and it is this love for our land and our cattle that inspires us to produce great beef.

Pasture-raised, grain-finished beef

Our calves are pasture-raised and grain-finished on optimally formulated feed consisting of roughage and high-quality grain. Adhering to this strict feeding regime ensures a consistent product and taste experience.
Our beef processing facility is FSSC 22000 certified, which means that Sparta has a robust Food Safety Management System in place to ensure our finished product meets world-class health and safety standards.

We Spartans love our beef, and we hope you will too!

The Group was established in 1966 by the late Dirk van Reenen on the farm Sparta in the Marquard district, in South Africa’s Free State province.
