Cymru: Farm Visits in October

Book a free farm tour to see Glanllyn Farm, Esgairllaethdy Farm, Henfron Farm or conservation grazing on Llanllechid common.

Following our Nature Means Business conference, our NFFN steering group members will be hosting farm visits across the UK. This is a great opportunity to see farming with nature in action and these tours will provide an insight into how nature can positively impact business, through reduced inputs and improved natural capital. This is also a chance to meet other like-minded nature-friendly farmers!

All farm visits are free and spaces are limited. Book your place on any of the below farm visits by emailing Rhys – rhys.evans@nffn.org.uk. Name, email address and phone number will be required to book.

Wales Farm Tour Schedule

Glanllyn Farm, St. Asaph, Denbighshire – 9.30am, 21st October 

Sam and Alex farm at Glanllyn Farm – a 160-acre holding comprising of 60-acres of woodland, 55-acres of permanent pasture and they rent 30-acres to a local dairy farm. Situated on the banks of the River Elwy in the Vale of Clwyd, they have an agroecological and regenerative approach to producing high-quality lamb, goats, turkeys and eggs from pasture-fed hens. The health and biodiversity of their farmland and livestock is their top priority and they have undergone flood resilience work to repair the river’s damaged banks. This is restoring valuable habitat which helps species such as moorhens and barn owls.

Esgairllaethdy, Myddfai, Carmarthenshire – 9.30am, 24th October

Esgairllaethdy is a 230-acre upland farm on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons. They graze for conservation across 50-acres, with grazing rights on the adjoining Mynydd Myddfai part of the Mynydd Du, where his cattle help manage the land for biodiversity. There are also 25 acres of native woodland. They plant thousands of trees every year in hedgerows and allow these hedges to grow up and out to provide shelter for livestock, plus food for wildlife. Farmer, Hywel, believes biodiverse-rich upland farms are underestimated for the amount of carbon they sequester through rich tapestries of grasses and mosses.

Tea, coffee and cakes on arrival.

Tyddyn Isaf, Bangor, Gwynedd – 9.30am, 30th October 

Hilary is Chair of NFFN Cymru and farms in North Wales and her main holding is a 66-acre upland farm with mountain rights on Llanllechid common. She also rents and manages the grazing on a range of SSSIs and nature reserves. Hilary is passionate about nature and wildlife and has found that it can fit into our farming system. She is keen to reduce inputs and manage the land and livestock, as naturally as possible. This tour includes a walk to look at conservation grazing at Morfa Madryn Nature Reserve.
