Staff from the Beacons Farm Shop at the Welsh Venison Centre, based at Middlewood Farm in Bwlch near Brecon, are encouraging food lovers to pay a visit to the store in order to take part in NFU Cymru’s popular #Buy5 campaign.
The new #Buy5 initiative encourages shoppers to support Welsh farms and producers by buying five items of Welsh food and drink when they visit their local farmers’ market, butcher, farm shop or supermarket.
Shoppers can support the campaign by taking a photo of five Welsh food and drink items they have purchased and sharing the image on social media using the #Buy5, #Prynu5 or #BackWelshFarming hashtags. All qualifying entries will be automatically entered into a prize draw and the winner, selected at random, will receive a hamper filled with Welsh produce. The competition will run until Sunday 2nd October.
The campaign was created as an answer to retailers’ use of ‘fake farm’ brands, an issue NFU Cymru has worked to highlight in recent weeks.
It is hoped that the public will continue to take part in the campaign and support real Welsh farm businesses, like the Beacons Farm Shop at the Welsh Venison Centre, in the process.
Rachel Morgan, who leads marketing and sales for the Beacons Farm Shop at the Welsh Venison Centre, said: “We’re proud to be a part of this excellent campaign supporting Welsh farm shops and Welsh producers. Anyone visiting our farm shop will see that this is part of a real working farm and much of the meat you find here is sourced from the fields that surround the shop. As well as stocking our own produce, we also place a high importance on sourcing a variety of high quality Welsh food and drink, so the Beacons Farm Shop is well worth a visit if you’re looking to take part in the #Buy5 challenge.”
Colin Millichap, NFU Cymru County Chairman for Brecon and Radnorshire, added: “We’re delighted that the Beacons Farm Shop at the Welsh Venison Centre has chosen to support the #Buy5 campaign. There’s still time to take part in the #Buy5 competition before it closes on Sunday 2 October, so send your photos to us and help support Welsh farms and producers in the process.”
