Delareyville is a small town that was founded in 1914 and named in honour of the Anglo-Boer War hero, General Jacobus de la Rey.

Maize, monkey nuts and salt are produced in vast quantities around Delareyville. The salt is extracted from two shallow pans in the vicinity which yield about 70 000 sacks every year.

More than 2 million sacks of mealies are also harvested every year and the townspeople are proud of the fleet of 4000 tractors registered in the district.
