Glenda and Mike Crawshaw and their son, Llion, work out of their farm set in quite stunning countryside in the River Ceiriog valley to the west of Llanarmon. Mike is second generation to farm at Dolwen, which he has done all his life.
They converted to organic in 2014, although it wasn’t a massive change as they’d already been farming with low inputs for several years beforehand. In fact, they’d been involved in agri-environmental schemes for almost 20 years, improving flora and fauna around the farm.
They are registered with Hybu Cig Cymru (Meat Promotion Wales) as Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Welsh Lamb and Beef suppliers. The PGI status of Welsh lamb and beef guarantees the authenticity and integrity of the brand.
Last year, Dolwen achieved a three-star award from the Great Taste Awards. More than 14,000 products from 108 countries entered the awards, with Dolwen named among the top two per cent of entries for their shoulder of Welsh lamb.
Glenda explained that “Products are given one, two or three stars. Winners of three stars then enter
the Golden Forks Award. To be in the top two per cent from more than 100 countries across the world is amazing.”
