Y Cwt, Longacre Farm
We are a small family run poultry farm in Pendoylan, near Cowbridge. Established after WW2. The farm has, by necessity diversified successfully a number of times, from producing eggs to table poultry.
During the Coronavirus, we experienced an upsurge in demand for eggs, jams and chutneys, which is now our business. As we supply small local shops and restaurants in Cardiff and the Vale we were able to react quickly to the changes in shopping habits. Customers began to choose independent shops rather than supermarkets. We were able to respond personally and quickly to increased and unpredictable demand meaning that our customers never ran out.
As restrictions have relaxed, there has been an obvious return to supermarket shopping but we all hope that customers will continue to support their local shops and produce.
Looking forward, we are in the process of renovating a large poultry shed into a co working space with café, crèche and meeting rooms. We will continue with supplying produce locally and hopefully showcase our produce on site to a new market.
