Mae gan yr Ynysoedd Prydeinig sawl frîd o ddefaid; rhai sydd wedi bodoli am ganrifoedd ac eraill sydd wedi eu cyflwyno yn fwy ddiweddar.

Gall y term Defaid Mynydd Cymreig gael eu ddefnyddio i ddisgrifio sawl frîd sy'n frodorol i Gymru ac mae Defaid Mynydd Balwen yn un o rhain.
 

Mae defaid Balwen yn tarddu o un ardal bach o Gymru - Dyffryn Tywi.

Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep originate from a small area of Wales - the Tywi valley.

During the disastrous winter of 1947, the breed was nearly wiped out with only one ram surviving. 

During the 1950's and 60's a steady increase took place and by the 1970's people outside the valley began to take an interest in the breed.

1985 the Balwen Welsh Mountain Breed Society was formed and although numbers continue to steadily increasing, the Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep continue to be on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust's watch list.
