Farming & Growing

North Wales has a long and proud tradition of hill farming. In our Farming for Food marquee you can meet the animals and those who rear them, and discover rural skills such as crook making and spinning.

Steve Kemp has been keeping shire horses for more than 20 years and has ten on the farm at Maesoglan. His horses are a star attraction at Gwledd Conwy Feast.

Gethin and Richard Owen rear 100 suckler beef cattle, pigs and 600 sheep at Betws-yn-Rhos. Their aim is to show that farming can be productive and envrionmentally sustainable.

Wyn Owen farms a herd of 60 pedigree Holstein dairy cows near Colwyn Bay and a flock of 1,500 Welsh Mountain ewes which graze the Carneddau mountain range.

Goatkeepers Eifion and Leah Roberts are third generation farmers on the family farm, high above the Conwy Valley.

Dafydd Roberts runs Bryn Dowsi, a 240 acre organic beef and sheep farm just outside Conwy.

Tegid and Olwen Williams farm land near Llanrwst where they buy young Jerseys and Hereford cross calves.
