NFU Cymru wrote an article about us supporting the buy5 Campaign! Go to the link above or check out the article below!

 

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.”

Date added: 03/22/2016 Lambing Live 2016

A busy time of year for famers. It is a lovely time of year for our customers to see the spring lambs skipping around the field just opposite the shop.

With 400 ewes to lamb in a short few weeks, the farm is a busy place to be. The smells, sights and sounds are unique to this wonderful time of year.

Andrew and Elaine are busy running the farm alongside the farm shop with help from shepard zack who looks after the flock during the day and the night shift has been covered by shepardess Rachel, who is enjoying the 3am wake up call.

With lots of twins this year the pens are very full in the lambing shed. Ruby loves to come home from school, find her wellies and off up the shed she goes to feed the pens.

She asked her grandad if she could have a pet lamb at home in the garden…. Mmmm??

You will notice the baby lambs in the field as you drive up towards the shop, be sure to come and see them. Park your car in our car park and enjoy a lovely spring walk, there are plenty to choose from in the ‘Awesome walks around Llangorse & Bwlch’ booklet.

Also enjoy a cuppa with a lovely slice of cake in the sunshine. We are open all over the bank holiday weekend. Good Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, bank holiday Monday 10.30am-5pm. Be sure to call in and see us and find some great Easter specials.

Have a lovely Easter from all the Welsh venison centre and beacons farm shop.

Wonderfully wet winter fair.

Despite the rain and wind, the winter fair was a great success. The food hall was festive and all the stands looked lovely. We had an enjoyable couple of days.

Elaine was one of the judges for the best dress Christmas stands after winning first prize at last year’s winter fair. The winners were ‘LOVE AT FIRST BAKE’ who’s stand looked festive and beautiful. Yummy cakes too.

With a great auction, Andrew brought some lamb carcases for the farm shop.

Last of the shows for this year. We look forward to next year’s shows at the show ground.
