All Together Now - Llwynhelyg Farm Shop, Ceredigion


Llwynhelyg Farm Shop, Sarnau, Ceredigion

This weekend we took Horace Greeley's advice and went West, spending 2 nights right on the Ceredigion coastal path, in a reclaimed Great Western railway carriage called Wendy in Aberporth. As we were in the area we called in (twice!) to Llwynhelyg Farm Shop, an award winning producer and Welsh food retailer in Sarnau, Ceredigion.

This farm shop is an Aladdin's cave of some of the best produce that Wales has to offer, including their own vegetables (we tried some marvellous Roma potatoes and a deliciously crunchy, unusual Hispi cabbage), meats and baked goods. I heartily recommend the pies. They didn't stick around long enough to be photographed, but the minced beef pie with peas and carrots was especially srcummy. For breakfast their own 'legendary pork sausages' are very good but top marks go to a crumbly, fatty black pudding.

If you're in the area they are well worth a visit! Here's some of their great produce...

Golwg Y Mor Aberport Welsh Lamb
Ultra local Welsh lamb from Golwg Y Mor Farm in Aberporth
A huge variety of chutneys and jams including Escoffier's Sweet Pepper Chutney
Wendy Brandon Gingered Fig Chutney
A spicy, pungent Gingered Fig Chutney by small producer Wendy Brandon, pairs well with
creamy cheese and Patchwork Organic Spelt & Oat Biscuits
Llwynhelyg Marmalade and New Quay Honey Farm Widlflower Honey
Seville Orange Marmalade and Pure Welsh Wildflower Honey from New Quay Honey Farm. The honey will be used for Petra's Honey Loaf from the Leon cookbook next week.
Stoneground flour from Felin Ganol and Y Felin
Baking law dictates that Felin Ganol flour must be purchased on sight, it's impossible to
get in Cardiff. They have a great range of flours and 
Y Felin stoneground will be a new
product for me but planning a wholemeal honey loaf.
Ty Tanglwst salted butter
IMHO, a rich salty butter like this is for the table and this is destined for some
toasted hot cross buns. Ty Tanglwst Dairy is an award winning dairy farm in Bridgend.
