Chris & Diane Jones began farming in 2007 with their two children Zak and Megan. We wanted good quality food for our family, because our children had reacted adversely to processed food, we then decided to produce our own, so Bryn Derw Farm was created.
We are producers of quality free range chicken; traditional rare breed free range pork and traditional free range herdwick lamb. Our biggest seller is free range whole chickens. Our animals are all slow growing breeds as we believe that good food comes to those who wait.
During early 2008 Chris & Diane gave up their day to day jobs to concentrate all their time and effort into the free range chicken enterprise, building up their business due to recent demands for quality food especially free range chicken.
We believe in a traditional approach to farming and because of that all our animals are kept in small herds or flocks. Prior to purchasing the land it was originally in the Tir Gofal agricultural scheme, where no land inputs were used, making our produce completely natural. Because of the introduction of pigs onto the land we cannot continue with the scheme.
Artificial fertilisers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives are not used on our holding.
We sell direct from the farm or via local butchers, farm shops, fine-dining restaurants, hotels, delicatessens, and farmers markets.
