In 2010 Oliver Booth came across an ancient traditional Pembrokeshire Pasty recipe and was inspired to create it to see what it was like. Having lived in Pembrokeshire all his life he was surprised by the fact that he had never come across this unique product and after some research discovered that no one within Pembrokeshire was making, selling or eating Pembrokeshire Pasties!
That was enough motivation for him to form the Pembrokeshire Pasty & Pie Co which opened the doors of its first shop on St Davids day 2010. The company had a hugely enjoyable year which has include a Royal visit from Prince Charles, a ‘best new product’ award and the completion of a purpose built pasty and pie facility on Sargwn Farm in Bethesda.
The Pembrokeshire Pasty & Pie Co’s goals are quite simple – “ we hand make pasties and pies, here on the farm, using the best Pembrokeshire produce we can find…….” Pembrokeshire Pasty, the best new product in Pembrokeshire 2010.
Using local produce where possible, supporting local farmers. We promise to bring you the freshest farm ingredients and the most sensational flavours combined to give you the best pasties & pies that Pembrokeshire has to offer.
A local Tenby businessman and having grown up in the area, Oliver has always been passionate about Pembrokeshire and its produce. When he discovered that there was an ancient recipe for Pembrokeshire’s own pasty he was disappointed to find that he couldn’t buy one anywhere. As a result of this, he decided to resurrect the ancient recipe and Pembrokeshire Pasty & Pie Co. was born.
