Village Dairy

The Dairy

Who knew from Gareth and Falmai’s first trials of yogurt in the Tal Y Bryn Farmhouse airing cupboard would develop into a thriving producer with a modern linear production facility specifically designed to create and package high quality yogurt.

The initial dairy was converted from an old Calf shed, where milk was bottled, cream separated and yogurt produced all next door to the Milking parlour and cow holding areas, where cow’s would wait to be milked.

Then in 1995 a more modern dairy was designed and built utilising the old redundant Farm Granary and other outbuildings to fulfil increased demand for our yogurt and Milk. For the next 20 years this was Llaeth Y Llan HQ, bits and bobs were added along the way to increase capacity but Gareth’s initial design allowed Llaeth Y Llan to grow for 20 years

2015 with the brand being stocked throughout Wales in 4 major retailers and independent stores the old dairy was at max capacity and then some.

Planning was granted to build a larger production facility next door to the old dairy, specifically designed from the start to create high quality yogurt and still on the Roberts Farm site.

2017 a big year for the Roberts family and Llaeth Y Llan, early in the year the Dairy passed its BRC audit with flying colours and May 25th the dairy was officially opened by Lesley Griffiths AM, Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs.

With all that was going on here at the dairy it was seen fit for a Royal Visit to see what’s capable in a rural setting outside a small Village like Llannefydd. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales attended site on the 14th of May 2017 and was given a tour of the production facility.

Now fully moved into the new dairy the team is busy still creating it’s award winning yogurt that it’s faithful customer base demands.
