Situated in a picturesque seaside village in West Wales, Ty Mawr Farm is home to a pastoral herd of Water Buffaloes, from Italian and Romanian heritage. Simply put, they graze luscious, rich welsh pastures, year-round. After calving, the buffalo are then milked to produce silky smooth, delicious, white milk. The porcelain white milk is then turned into artisanal mozzarella for your enjoyment!
The farm is also home to a flock of pure-breed Lleyn sheep from the very best bloodlines, from the Lleyn Peninsula. Our buffalo and sheep are kept in a pastoral system, which means they graze on pasture, untreated by chemicals, and they are fed very little other than the grass beneath their feet, except in winter when they eat conserved forage (hay, silage).
Our Ty Mawr herd of Buffalo is based on Romanian and Italian genetics, meaning they have a good balance milk production but are also hardier animals that can survive the harsh british winters..
We also keep a small flock of pedigree Lleyn sheep, which we use for production of lamb and also to maintain a balanced mixed-grazing system on our land.
Here at the Buffalo Dairy, we pride ourselves on our sustainability. It is important as a business in our industry to have a social responsibility. By managing our flock and herd of animals pastorally, we are enabling the land on which they graze to recover.
The animals are looked after responsibly, ensuring they are relaxed and content when they provide us with the milk to produce our products.
