The Roberts family story
Who knew that from Gareth and Falmai’s first trials of yogurt in their Tal Y Bryn Farmhouse airing cupboard, back in 1985, Llaeth Y Llan 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 cows 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’s 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.
In 2015 with the brand now stocked throughout Wales in 4 major retailers and independent stores, the old dairy was at maximum capacity!
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 family farm.
2017 was 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 on May 25th the dairy was officially opened by Lesley Griffiths AM, Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs.
Today the team are still busy producing and creating award-winning yogurt.
