It’s been a very busy year so far here at Welsh Venison!

We’ve been lambing, Andrew and Elaine had the pleasure of being invited to Number 10 back in February, we have a newly trained sheepdog, Hunter AND we have a brand new menu!

A hectic Hay festival has just finished and the summer season is officially in full swing and we are busy serving our new dishes to our wonderful customers in this gorgeous weather. We have plenty of seating outside for you to soak up the sun and enjoy a tasty treat, but if the heat is too much for you we have added additional seating inside.

We hope to see you soon.

Date added: 03/27/2018 Snowy March & Lambing 2018

Wow! What a snowy March it has been. This time of year is always busy for farmers and it certainly has been for us at Middlewood farm. Even though the weather has proved somewhat different from last march we have still managed to keep the Farm shop open for business serving our full menu and lovely hot drinks for our customers. We have also been very busy lambing. It is so lovely for our customers to see our lively lambs skipping around the fields opposite our Farm shop. Why not come and visit us and our little lambs and enjoy some of our award winning Faggots with mash, mushy peas and gravy? This dish has proved very popular this month a warming meal for our customers in this cold blustery weather. 

Did you know, you can park in our car park and take a spring walk up the Allt and experience the picturesque views? Then why not return to us and sit outside next to our log burning fire and deer skin covered chairs with a hot drink and watch our lambs and stags in the fields surrounding the Farm shop. This time of year is one we adore at the Farm shop and really encourage our customers to come and experience such a beautiful time of year with us.
