About this event

Join me and Teleri Fielden for a farm visit with a difference. You may have heard Teleri on Notes from the Hill or on my Anchor Podcast. You’ll be aware that she is a brilliant, hardworking and passionate farmer trying to make nature friendly farming work here in Snowdonia. She also works for the Farmers Union of Wales. Come and join me, Mike Raine – author of Nature of Snowdonia, as we discover how she is doing and what she hopes for the future. I believe it behoves us all to know more about where our food comes from and how our land is managed. This workshop will be of particular interest to mountain leaders and mountaineering instructors, but also to Lowland Leaders and Hill and Moorland Leaders as the farm rises from a flood plain to some rough upland grazing. We’ll certainly talk about the challenges of farming, the farmers year, how stock is selected and managed. But we’ll also study the nature around the farm and how farming can impact the environment in positive and negative ways. This will be a two site visit with time spent on the lowland and woodland part of the farm then a visit to the higher ground where she grazes cattle on the slopes of Moel y Dyniewyd.
