The unique, ancient landscape of Wales is perfectly suited to sheep and beef farming. The lush, green habitat encompasses lowland pastures rolling down to the sea, and dramatic, mountainous uplands rich with hardy, fragrant heathers, all fed by a myriad of streams and rivers.

It's an expansive grass-rich environment in which to raise sheep and cattle, and the main reason why Wales has been associated with livestock farming for generations. If you're looking for free-range, high-quality, natural food, PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef is it.

The changing terrain results in a lengthy Welsh lambing season with the warmer lowlands producing their lambs first and the hardier uplands producing theirs last. This gives consumers access to tasty Welsh Lamb nearly all year round.

Welsh Lamb: nature and man working in perfect harmony.
