The town of Postmasburg is located in the Z F Mgcawu District Municipality, 196km from Kimberley (to the south-east) and 217km from Upington (to the south-west).

There are many commercial and smallscale stock farmers in the district. Distance from market and access to processing plants are limiting factors for farmers. A meat-processing plant will focus on beef and game meat-processing, drawing from suppliers in the surrounding district.

Kakamas is located on the banks of the Orange River on the N14 highway that connects Springbok with the interior. Kakamas falls under the Z F Mgcawu District Municipality.

Small-scale farmers and producers are often restricted in their growth through not gaining good value for their products because they are sold in their raw state. The Ecksteenskuil Raisin Co-operative in Kakamas seeks to change that by engaging in processing to add value to their raisins.
