Hello & Welcome
to
Glanllyn Farm

Thank you heaps for your interest in our humble but very special farm

Sat on the banks of the River Elwy in beautiful North Wales, we farm nature friendly, sustainably and regeneratively to produce quality lamb from our small flock of home bred ewes. There’s also our little diversification into the legends of the farmyard – our mighty herd of goats!

About Us & The Farm

Hi! I’m Sam and my husband is Alex, and we’re working to improve the health and biodiversity of the farmyard, land and historic woodlands.

I’m the farmer – or the goat servant if you ask them mischievous loves, Alex is a full time maths teacher, and together we’re doing our best to breathe life back in to the old place – working to regenerate our soils, plus create resilience in the face of climate change by working with nature.

By selling our nutrient rich, high welfare and slow grown produce direct to our much treasured customers, we’re able to use our Farm to Fork diversification to help put more back in to the land – caring for our soils, and  habitats. It allows us to carry out work for continuously improving the health and biodiversity of the place for future generations of plants, livestock, people and wildlife.

Right now we’re working towards creating some alluring mini glades within the woods, enhancing the mix of flora and so giving more fauna a place to call home.

We use the grazing livestock to help regenerate our soils, investing in long term resilient herbal grass leys for pollinators, reduced erosion, and to improve water and carbon sequestration.

Before I drop in to my Nature-and-Environment-Loving-Nerd mode, seeing me witter on about the wonders of symbiotic ecosystems and the possibility of reversing climate change through regenerative agriculture, we’ll move smartly on to our meat box scheme…

High Welfare & Nature Friendly Produce

Each month we produce deliciously lean goat meat boxes or succulent lamb boxes for our awesome customers. It’s up to you loves if you would like a small taster, half or whole box. We really like stocking our freezer up with this versatile healthy meat (less trips to the shops = less of a carbon footprint) hence why we don’t sell individual cuts, so please do drop us a line with your box preference!

 

I can deliver within North Wales straight to your door from the family run butchers we use, and once sometimes twice a month, I do deliver out from our farm shop. Also, you are more than welcome to come and collect from our tiny tiny impromptu farm shop.

 

We also have hogget and mutton available seasonally – hogget is slow grown lamb which is over a year old and the meat is so tender. Just as with our lamb, these have enjoyed a completely pasture fed slow grown life and I’ll pop availability up on my social media posts. Or so as not to miss out, please sign up to join our mailing list through the Contact Us bit at the bottom of this page.

The Meat Boxes

Our goat and lamb boxes come in a choice of sizes as listed below. Whole boxes need to be pre-ordered so our butcher can make the best of the cuts for you – please get in touch with any questions, for some helpful tips and more info.

 

We use recyclable boxes and Woolcool fleece pouches if needed with their natural sustainable insulation – just one more way we’re working to lessen our impact on the planet.

 

By law all meat has be wrapped and sealed in plastic so we’ve decided to plant some hedges to help offset our carbon footprint.

 

We can take pre-orders, and if you have a personal preference of how you’d like our butcher to chop your meat – please do get in touch with us using the contact form below.
