Farm Visit – Esgairllaethdy, Carmarthenshire
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 – firstname.lastname@example.org. Name, email address and phone number will be required to book.
Esgairllaethdy, 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.
