The Welsh Venison Centre in Bwlch, near Crickhowell, is easy to find just off the A40 in the Brecon Beacons National Park. There are stunning views of the Brecon Beacons from the farm which specialises in producing venison and also its own lamb, beef and locally-produced meat as well as deli items, bread and gifts from its Beacons Farm Shop.
The family business was set up by the Morgan family in 1985 and is now run by husband and wife team Andrew and Elaine Morgan.
The Beacons Farm Shop is open six days a week – it’s a handy place to can pop in to pick up venison for a casserole or quality pork, beef and lamb. The team of butchers on site are always on hand to prepare meat to suit your recipe requirements and the friendly shop staff are happy to advise you on how to cook your meat to perfection.
The farm shop also stocks a wide range of gift items and beautiful homewares. They even sell their very own deer skin rugs and also sheep skins which come in an amazing variety of colours and patterns. The shop also sells items such as cheese, olives and fresh bread – everything you could want for a picnic, barbecue or delicious meal at your holiday cottage. While you’re at the shop you’ll also be tempted to stop for a cup of tea and some delicious cake.
