Rhug Estate Organic Farm
Lord Newborough is owner of Rhug Estate in North Wales which comprises the main farm in Corwen Denbighshire farming 6700 acres and Ty Mawr on the Gwynedd coast farming 1300 acres. Currently the farms produce Aberdeen Angus Beef, Welsh Lamb, Welsh Salt Marsh Lamb , Chicken, Geese and Turkeys at Christmas and Thanksgiving all reared organically. They also run a herd of Wild Bison and more recently have begun supplying wild forage from both farms.
Provenance and traceability are key, no pesticides or chemicals can be present in anything on the farm. They use the local family run abattoir and the meat is returned to the estates purpose built maturation and cutting plant.
Slow growing breeds are chosen to ensure the end product has the best possible flavour and this is of course the ultimate goal, after all what is the point of being organic but tasteless? This is where Rhug excels, not only are they organic but they are producing some of the best meat and poultry on the market.
