Our Animals

As a working farm we seek to educate visitors  and volunteers on where their food comes from, including meat and eggs.  As such our breeding and stocking policy is to provide food for the plate as well as increased awareness of the issues surrounding production.  

 

We also seek to promote rare breed farm animals, and especially Welsh rare-breeds.  This is in an effort to preserve both animal diversity and Welsh cultural heritage.

The pigs we keep and breed here are Large Blacks. They are a rare breed originally from South West England. They are hardy, fuss free and make excellent mothers to large litters.

Our sheep are Llanwennog, a rare Welsh breed from West Wales. Sheep are hardy and graze outdoors and can provide meat and wool.

Donkeys

Deeyo and Trefor are our donkeys. They are lovely boys. They help to manage the local heathland by grazing it and provide therapeutic donkey cuddles. Their soft velvety noses are just awesome!

Ducks

We keep Welsh Harlequin Ducks. Wales' only native duck breed and a rare breed. They provide tasty eggs and share their pen with our Brecon Buff geese.

This is one of our old Boer goats looking adorable. The goats are real characters and help to keep all of the brash hedges and brambles under control.

Bees

We have 4 hives of honey bees at the Farm but hope to expand over the summer. Bees help to pollinate our crops and give us tasty honey.
