Wales might be a small nation…

With a population of just over three million, this humble land of leeks and dragons has churned out more impressive faces in proportion to its population than you’ll find anyone else in the world: Dylan Thomas, Shakin Stevens, Shirley Bassey, Gareth Bale, Anthony Hopkins and Richard Burton have all been proud to call Wales home.

There are more things, unique to Wales, which make it so much better than other nations.  It is celebrated for having the longest place name in the world (Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyll-llantysiliogogogoch which translates as “The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio’s of the red cave”) and has more castles per square mile than anywhere else as well. Mt Everest was even named after a man from Breconshire!

When it comes to Wales’ proud history, you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s something in the water. And you’d be right. But it’s not just the water – it’s the soil, the livestock… and the very air!

Before Lizi turned her hand to making and selling granola, she used to farm pedigree Welsh Black Cattle and Welsh Mountain Sheep. Welsh Blacks are the oldest breed in the UK (dating back to Roman times) and have a better taste and texture to more recent breeds. Our nation has always put nature, cattle and farming before anything else; there’s a reason Wales has four times as many sheep as humans!

It was Lizi’s experience farming Welsh Sheep that brought her attention to the superior quality of Welsh food. Lizi used her experience of the land to make and sell Granola – and the success of Lizi’s Granola over the last decade is as much Lizi’s success story as it is Wales’.

And now, we are proud to be part of Ocado’s new shop-within-a-shop scheme, showcasing over 100 different products from 23 Welsh companies. You can visit the store and have our delicious, Welsh-reared granola delivered from our farm straight to your door. We’ve had Wales all to ourselves for so long, it seemed impolite not to share.

Cymru Am Byth
