This is the blog for Black Welsh Lamb – high quality organic black welsh mountain lamb from Pen y Wyrlod Farm in the uplands of North Monmouthshire.
On this site we want to show you how our lamb is grown, the sustainable methods we are trying to adopt and the historic landscape that we farm in.
Pen y Wyrlod has been here since the mid 1550’s and the land has hardly changed since that time. The fields are the same size and shape, the hedges all survive, we have ancient trees and there are more than 40 species of grass and herbs in the pasture.
This all helps us to grow lambs which only feed on natural grass and hay, developing slowly to reach maturity after seven or eight months. Their meat is tender, low fat and has a complex flavour that more commerical lambs simply cannot match.
