The farm shop opened in the summer of 2018, with the aim of selling high-quality Welsh produce. Ian has a passionate interest in British cheeses and now has a well-stocked deli counter with, on average, 30 welsh cheeses at any one time. He also has Guest Cheeses from different UK dairies.
There is a Wednesday and Saturday delivery of locally made Sourdough bread, produced by Andy’s Bread (Wednesday from Llanidloes) Rye & Roses (Saturday from Penegoes); as well as weekly deliveries of organic welsh milk, butter and free-range eggs (discounted if you bring your own box!), gammon, pork, sausages, bacon and burgers, pork pies, and fruit and vegetables.
The farm shop now also sells locally farmed Welsh Lamb, Cig Oen Mawddwy, from nearby Llanymawddwy. This is an exciting new development and we are happy to be working closely with our farming neighbours.
We have BioD cleaning products and you can bring your bottles in to be refilled; and there are lots of delicious jams, preserves, chutneys, sauces, biscuits, crackers and chocolate available too.
Pop in and take a look – we are happy to take orders and reserve items too.
Our café will be opening in early 2020.
Our Story So Far…
Camlan Garden Centre opened in the summer of 2016, and the Farm Shop opened in the summer of 2018.
Lisa and Ian Allsop grasped the opportunity to transform an unused plot of land just off the A470 in Dinas Mawddwy into a much-needed local garden centre and farm shop. The farm shop uses both main electric and solar power to provide lighting; as well as power for a water pump for use with rainwater from large storage tanks for irrigation. The shops are converted shipping containers, clad in larch to blend in with the surrounding landscape.
The new farm shop is run by Ian Allsop, who has retired from gardening to indulge his love of cheese! The shop stocks a wide choice of Welsh and British cheeses, fresh locally produced bread as well as lots of tasty Welsh produce from companies including Halen Mon, Pembrokeshire Beachfood Company, and Wickedly Welsh Chocolate. More recently the farm shop has been able to stock locally farmed pork from Neuadd Fach Baconry and Cig Oen Mawddwy lamb.
The garden centre, run by Lisa Allsop, stocks Welsh and British grown plants such as Welsh variety fruit trees and hardy shrubs, alpines and perennials, all well suited to the climate in this part of Wales; along with a selection of more traditional plants such as summer bedding plants.
