Penrhiw Farm

Penrhiw Farm is an upland farm , extending to 70 hectares situated on the eastern side of the Taff Bargoed valley in the county borough of Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.. 
The farm has been owned by the Thomas family for at least four generations, and the farmhouse is of the traditional Welsh long house type with a stone barn attached. 
A flock of purebred South Wales mountain sheep, known locally as Nelsons, was established fifty years ago. These ewes are renowned for their hardiness and tremendous natural mothering instincts and produce lambs of excellent flavour.
The herd of suckler cows is bred with our pedigree Aberdeen Angus bull. The calves are born in the spring and suckle their mothers for nine months. They spend the cold and wet winter months indoors and are then turned out onto fresh grass in the spring. The cattle thrive on our upland pastures and readily produce good quality beef. 
The farm is mainly permanent grassland , together with a small area of forage crops which are grown to support the livestock. Penrhiw Farm achieved organic status in March 2001. 
Soil Association, License Number, G4720. We are a member of the Farm Assurance Scheme (No. 2895). 
Produce can be bought directly from the farm and local deliveries can be arranged.
