Forage Farm Shop and Kitchen

Forage Farm Shop and Kitchen is situated on Penllyn Estate Farm, just off the A48 near Cowbridge. It offers customers the opportunity to buy high quality, seasonal food with an emphasis on Welsh produce.

Much of it originates from the Estate itself, with a broad range of carefully selected local and UK producers also supplying goods to the shop and restaurant. The mission is to provide fresh, delicious produce in a beautiful, newly constructed setting.

Manager Damien Burnell’s favourite recipe made at Forage Farm Shop is Beetroot, Butternut squash and goats cheese burgers. Chloe had a go at making these and can confirm they are absolutely delicious, a great alternative to an original meat burger. Have a go at making these yourselves and tweet us a photo of your finished product @thevalefood #foodvale
