Troedrhiwdrain, Elan Valley, Powys – 2pm, Wednesday 18th May

Sorcha and Brian Lewis are third generation tenant farmers living at Troedrhiwdrain Farm with their two children.  Troedrhiwdrain (meaning ‘at the foot of the thorny bank’), is a 580ha family upland farm.  Over the last 10 years Brian and Sorcha have developed the productivity of the farm, whilst successfully retaining and incorporating many important habitats, including hay meadows, ffridd and rhos pasture.

Due to its location within the water catchment for the water supply to Birmingham, the farm has been managed as low impact for generations, with no inorganic fertilisation of the ground, just sheep or cattle manure. This careful management, along with the range of habitats, means the farm hosts a wealth of wildlife habitats and species.
