The pandemic focussed Rhiannon Phillips’ mind on the importance of Wales as a self-sustaining food producing nation and reinforced her ambition to help deliver that ambition by working in agriculture.
Rhiannon is studying agriculture at Reaseheath College, currently on her placement year at Wynnstay.
She grew up on a dairy farm and recently started a project of her own with the introduction of nine pedigree Jerseys into the family’s Holstein herd.
As an active member of Troedyraur YFC, she enjoys participating in club activities.
After completing her college course Rhiannon plans to study agriculture at university.
Ahead of that, she knows that the Agri Academy Junior Programme will help with her planning towards her future career path.
