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.

Date added: 08/28/2015 Venison centre on tour! Summer season:
After another busy summer we would like to thank all of our loyal customers for visiting us and say a big welcome to new customers.
Whether you’ve seen us at our farm shop or at one of the many festivals we attend this year. There is always something for everyone. A new favourite for this summer was the launch of the venison salad box – a delicious treat with marinated BBQ venison striploin with mix salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, couscous, haloumi, sour cream and humous. It proved to be very popular, even our staff couldn’t get enough of the new flavours.
After a busy and full packed summer with shows and festivals, we now pack down, clean away until the next event; winter fair at the royal welsh show ground.
Date added: 07/14/2015 Greenman festival 2015
As always a fantastic weekend of hard work and fun. A local music festival situated in the heart of the Brecon beacons, Glanusk estate http://www.glanuskestate.com/ and its beautiful surroundings. This year at Greenman the rain came down but did not stop the festival fans smiling and enjoying a great weekend. The walled garden created a fantastic atmosphere and the Welsh venison gang this year provided the festival with the favourite and popular venison chilli with nachos. We also provided something new for the early birds; pancakes with bacon, blueberries and maple syrup, this was definitely worth waking up for.

Bambi is born
Summer is here and the baby deer are being born. If you visit the farm shop you may be lucky enough to spot one of the new born in the field next to the farm shop. Some just a week old, the fawns are finding their feet and running around enjoy this lovely sunshine.
The baby deer are born with white spots but will lose these within a year.
Date added: 06/06/2015 Hay festival
With our new welsh oak stand set up this year, we were ready for the 10 day book festival with our hot food and slate of cheese stand. We welcomed lots of celebrity venison lovers as well as our friends. This year we sponsored Eddie Butler a rugby union correspondent with the Observer and can also be heard commentating on the BBC's rugby union coverage. He enjoyed our gourmet venison burger with our famous wedges. We celebrated a member of staff 21st and the Gwernyfed rugby ladies paid us a visit before going to see Gareth Thomas.
