Penrhiw Farm

 

 

 

 

 


 

The main enterprises are a herd of suckler cows and a flock of South Wales Mountain Sheep, locally known as ‘Nelson’ ewes.   The sheep and cattle graze the hill pastures and meadows which are rich in clover and free from any artificial chemicals and fertilizers.  Almost all the winter feed is grown on the farm making the farming practices at Penrhiw truly sustainable.  The farm supports a rich variety of wildlife demonstrating the environmental benefits of organic farming. 

Penrhiw’s Aberdeen Angus beef is becoming renowned for its tenderness, flavour and succulence.  The calves are born in the Spring and suckle their mothers for at least nine months.  They spend the cold winter months indoors eating clover rich hay and silage.  They are turned out in the Spring to graze fresh grass rich in natural herbs.

All the lambs are reared on the ‘Nelson’ ewes renowned for their hardiness and natural mothering instincts.  The lambs are born outdoors in Spring and soon learn to graze with their mothers.  They fatten naturally and fresh prime organic lamb is available almost all the year round.

Penrhiw Farm lamb and beef is available as individual joints, freezer packs, half lambs (or whole) and can be supplied to customers’ particular requirements.  Special home deliveries by arrangement.

‘Quality’ is Penrhiw Farm’s trademark.  The farm is regularly inspected by the Soil Association to ensure the highest standards are maintained. 

Penrhiw Farm meat has commended for many years in the Wales True Taste Awards.  In 2009, an Aberdeen Angus Sirloin Steak reached the finals and won 2 bronze awards - in the red meat category and in the organic section.
