Our Organic Range

Our Story

Many dairy farmers have always wanted to sell
their own milk to local people through their
own company, and in 2000 that's what a group
of Welsh organic farmers started to do.
Initially there were four members, now
Calon Wen Co-operative boasts more
than twenty family farms...

An unfortunate side effect of no events this summer is too much frozen yoghurt!
We have 149 napoli’s in Cardiff and 45 in Narberth - Strawberry 🍓 and chocolate 🍫 flavours.
As they run out of date in February if anyone has the correct transportation (such as a freezer truck) and can take a pallet off our hands we would be grateful to give it to the community rather than have to throw it away. Please DM with any suggestions!

📜 The lovespoon is a traditional craft that dates back to the C17th. The lovespoon was given to a young woman by her suitor, proving to her father that he was capable of providing for the family and woodworking. 💌
📜 The earliest known dated lovespoon from Wales is displayed in the St Fagans National History Museum and is from 1667, although the tradition is believed to date back long before that! 💌

The Hairy Bikers have created this delicious Chocolate Log! Super Christmassy and easy to decorate, find their recipe below!

Ingredients:
- 6 large eggs
- 150g caster sugar
- 50g cocoa powder
- 200g dark cooking chocolate
- 200g icing sugar
- 200g Calon Wen unsalted butter
- 2tbsp coffee essence
- Icing sugar and holly leaves to decorate

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/Gas 4. Line a 23x33cm baking tray with baking parchment and grease with a little butter.
2. Put the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until thick and creamy. Sift the cocoa powder and whisk into the egg mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the cocoa mixture gradually until evenly distributed. Pour evenly into the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until well risen.
3. Remove the cake from the oven, loosen the edges with a blunt knife and leave to stand. Turn the cake out onto a piece of baking parchment and leave to completely cool for 30-40 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, make the icing. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat and leave to cool, but don’t allow to set! Put the icing sugar and butter in a good processor, and blitz until smooth. Add the coffee essence and 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate, then blend until smooth. Make sure the chocolate is cool, or it will melt the butter.
5. Take just over half the icing mixture out of the processor and place to one side - this will be the filling. With the motor running, slowly add the remaining chocolate to the icing mixture in the food processor and blend until smooth. This will be the icing on the cake!
6. When the cake is cool, trim off the crusty edges. Using a spatula, spread the filling over the cake, taking it right to the edges. Starting at one of the long sides, gently roll up the sponge, keeping the first roll as tight as possible so a spiral shape is formed. Spread the icing evenly over the cake.
7. Chill for at least 30 minutes to allow the icing to set and decorate!

We’ve been Caerffili scratching our heads this week, trying to think of jokes that won’t make people Cry(f). Please don’t turn (Rossett) Red in embarrassment, we’re being pretty Mature and Mellow.
Many people are Board of average food hampers, but this is one DIY that won’t go wrong!
We hope these puns have buttered you up enough to check out this cheeseboard that is fast becoming a favourite!
