The sprawling Rhug Estate covers a remarkable 12,500 acres in the rugged Dee Valley. For 20 years it has been a bastion of organic farming and animal welfare, with Lord Newborough at the helm. You might well see his Labrador ‘Truffles’ roaming around on the scent of a sausage. The dedication to planet and people can be tasted in every bite of the beef, lamb, chicken and game.
If you’re on your way to Snowdonia, stop off to enjoy the estate’s walks (pick up a map from the shop), play area and treat-yourself, award-winning Bison Grill. Browse the farm shop’s local products, from Snowdonia cheeses and Penderyn whisky to Rhug Estate wool duvets.
If you’re in a rush, On The Hoof serves fast food a class apart from other takeaways (try the bison burger), while the drive-thru coffee shop is an inspired idea and blows your average café chain out of the water. Drive up to the hatch for farm-grade drinks, sausage rolls, paninis and cakes cheerily served in compostable packaging.
