Carmarthen's PGI approved butchers with a passion for farming
The Preseli Mountains of North Pembrokeshire is an area steeped in history and reputed to have provided the mammoth bluestones for the inner circle of Stonehenge. With breath-taking views across the farmland of West Wales, towards the far tip of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the view from the Preseli Mountains is set out like an enormous mosaic of vivid colours and textures.
Farming at its best
Nestled in the undulating landscape is the home of farmer Mr Llew Rees. Along with his brother, they farm the breadth of the Preseli Mountain range with their herd of cattle and flock of Welsh mountain sheep. In the spring, summer, and autumn, the hillside provides the perfect natural habitat for the livestock. It is here amid the scattered bluestones where the lambs are reared and enjoy the wealth of natural herbs and grasses, which contributes towards the unique flavour and quality of the meat.
Bringing quality meats to you
The great passion for farming stimulated Mr Llew Rees to make the lamb and beef more widely available, which followed with the development of a purpose-built catering butchery. Meat can be supplied from here to individual customer specification, in whole or part-carcass or even as separate joints. The combination of farm and butchery ensures that the teams of Preseli Bluestone Meats only travel the minimum food miles to help support environmentally aware consumers who seek a low carbon footprint and eco-friendly lifestyle. The areas we cover include Haverfordwest, Milford Haven, Llanelli, Whitland, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
Following rigorous standards
Our lamb and beef is raised according to both animal welfare and environmentally friendly standards. They are premium products that provide excellent texture and quality of meat. It is the tenderness and exceptional sweetness that offers consumers a succulent meat, which is easy to prepare.
Recognised by the European Commission
The lamb and beef from Preseli Bluestone Meats has unique heritage, character, and reputation, and is recognised by the European Commission (EC). Due to this, they qualify for the coveted status of PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). This means that the only lamb and beef born and reared in Wales that is fully traceable and has been processed in approved abattoirs, can be labelled as Welsh.
