Lea Williams

Llansannan, Denbighshire

With a childhood immersed in farming on her family’s beef and sheep farm, Lea Williams’ is ambitious for a career in agriculture.

As the daughter of parents who have worked hard to buy their own farm, Lea would like to follow in their footsteps and achieve the same herself one day.

She is currently in her final year studying agriculture at Glynllifon College and in her spare time she helps out on the farm, doing everything from feeding the livestock and handling cattle to managing the family’s holiday accommodation and egg and honey sales business.

“I love taking care of everyone and everything and of course the ultimate job of farmers is to look after their livestock while also looking after the population that needs to be fed,’’ she says.

One of Lea’s main interests is singing, with a voice that has seen her winning prizes at competitions including the National Eisteddfod from a very young age. 

She is also a member and treasurer of Llansannan Young Farmers Club, participating in eisteddfodau, field days and the rally. 

As she looks ahead to her future career, which might include running her own business, Lea is looking forward to building on her knowledge during the Agri Academy Junior Programme to help her on that path.

“It will also be good to meet other young people who have similar interests to mine, to share ideas and to learn from each other.’’
