Welsh farm’s drive-through takeaway opens for business

Move over McDonald’s – an enterprising farm in Wales has just opened what’s thought to be the world’s first drive-through takeaway.

In a bold and unusual diversification, the Rhug Estate farm is now taking orders from hungry and hectic punters to complement its bistro, takeaway and shop diversifications.

Peckish travellers can call in at the drive-through to fill up on hot and cold drinks and a range of food – and the ever-environmentally conscious estate has made all of the takeaway packaging compostable.

Based on the A5 near Corwen in north Wales and owned by Lord Newborough, the farm is famed for its quality organic and exotic meat, which includes wild bison and Japanese sika deer.

“The new drive-through will provide an easy, quick solution to the hungry traveller who wants to get back on their journey without delay,” said Lord Newborough, a former Farmers Weekly Awards Farmer of the Year.
