Welsh meat

Welsh Lamb

Welsh lamb and beef both have the coveted status of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) awarded by the European Commission in recognition of their unique quality.

The Welsh Black is one of the oldest cattle breeds in Britain and produces beef of the highest quality. Welsh Black Beef is praised by chefs worldwide. Welsh lamb is world famous. Whether it is reared on the mountains or the salt marshes the meat is renowned for its great quality and sweetness.

Thanks to HRH Prince Charles and leading chefs across Britain, mutton is enjoying a revival in our kitchens. Noted for its gamey flavour, mutton (meat from sheep which has aged for two years) has a particularly full flavour, making it suitable for casseroles and hearty stews. Graig Farm Organics, one of the pioneers of organic food, offers award-winning produce including Welsh mutton. Their range covers everything from organic meats and sustainable fish to organic baby food.

The Welsh Venison Centre, in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, is a family firm that reflects the new generation of farmers with the highest standards for animal welfare. They produce premium quality Middlewood Welsh lamb as well as beef, pork and venison. 

It is also easy to find and purchase Halal meat across Wales.
