Our Farmers

"It’s pride in our farmers, who get it just right,

It’s pride in our country – it’s Wales in each bite."

Our farmers are a vital part of everything we do. Not only do they grow the delicious Welsh produce we pack into every Blas y Tir bag, but they also own our business! Our dedicated farmers have been working the land for generations and are now passing on their knowledge to the next generation. Working sustainably with our farmers also means we're working to preserve the beauty of our unique landscape and support the region’s communities & wildlife whilst continuing to grow for Wales!

We think it's important that you know exactly where your food comes from, so all our Blas y Tir bags have the name of the farmer printed on the back... who's your farmer?
