ABOUT THE AREA

Bredasdorp is a small Overberg town located in the Western Cape Province in South Africa.

Bredasdorp, economic capital of the Cape Agulhas Region, was established around a Dutch Reformed Church in 1838 and is still strongly founded in its agricultural roots. The town was named after Cape Town's first major, Michiel van Breda, also known as the father of South Africa’s merino sheep industry. Van Breda and Pieter Voltelyn van der Byl, could not agree where the church should be built. As a result two churches were built, and two towns, Bredasdorp and Napier, were established.

This town with its population of 22 000 is the centre of the Region’s wheat producing area; Bredasdorp serves largely the local agricultural community. Besides sheep farming, the town also boasts other agricultural activities, including wheat, canola, milk, and indigenous fynbos cultivation. The town is also the location of the offices of Kapula Candles, an international candle company that exports hand-painted candles to Europe and the United States. The population of the town got a boost during the middle 1980's with the establishment of both the Test Flight & Development Centre (South African Air Force) as well as the Overbreg Test Range (Denel) near the small coastal village of Arniston. Development in the town is very rapid, with a number of prominent South African business franchises opening their doors during 2009 and 2010. Bredasdorp boasts two large shopping centres with the two major supermarket chain stores as anchors.
