The Rhug Estate Farm, Corwen, North Wales
Home to one of North Wales’ most exclusive organic farm shops, Rhug Estate produce can be found not only on the plates of the royal guests of Clarence House but also on those of diners at some of London’s most prestigious hotels including the Dorchester Hotel and the Ritz.
Situated on the historic A5 coach road between Shrewsbury and North Wales, the Rhug Estate is a top notch pit stop for travellers heading for Snowdon and the Llyn Peninsula. Whether you pop in for a takeaway, to enjoy an organic bison burger in the bistro or to stock up on supplies in the Farm Shop for the journey ahead, it is sure to meet your needs admirably and is well worth any detour.The Foodie Travel Guide

Established in the 1990s by Lord Newborough, the Estate’s 6,700 acre organic farm is now a world recognised brand. It’s particularly known for its meat (including bison) and has received numerous Great Taste awards. Voted ‘Best On Farm Restaurant’ in 2013 (FARMA), it was also nominated by The Sunday Times as one of ‘Britain’s 20 Best Farm Shops’.
Eat a Bison Burger
Take Away On The Hoof
A favourite with weekend bikers, walking groups and coach parties is the Rhug Farm’s takeaway ‘On the Hoof’. The menu here reads like that of any traditional roadside café however, we can assure that it’s as far removed from any ‘greasy spoon’ café you may have encountered. Baps are made with matured rump steak and dry cured gammon, while the burgers have organic Aberdeen Angus beef and local lamb. Simply delicious.
Shop For Quality Meat and Welsh Produce
- The Rhug Estate has a number of shooting and fishing tenants and occasional days come up for sale

Bison meat is healthy to eat, being low in cholesterol and fat, low in calories and high in protein. Native Americans used to flavour it with wild blueberries.
