The large majority of our products stem from what is referred to as the “fifth” quarter? In other words the left over parts of animals that are culled for the venison industry.

Large tracts of South Africa are privately owned and due to decades of sound game management and conservation practices, plains game numbers are flourishing. For the benefit of the vegetation or due to drought or other factors many land owners have to cull excess game annually. The meat goes into the venison industry and the remainder - the 5th quarter, ends up with us.

Our birds and non bovids have either died at rehab centers, private zoo facilities or registered breeders of natural causes or injuries.

PAC ( Problem Animal Control) in the farming industry is another source of some of our specimens, which otherwise often go to waste.
