A student at Coleg Glynllifon, Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, Hefin Owen has recently completed his first year studying towards acquiring his Level 3 in Agriculture. Hefin has plenty of opportunity to put his studies into practice working on his family’s dairy farm near Llanrwst. Hefin hopes to continue his academic studies and attend university to read agriculture.
Outside of his studies, Hefin’s main interests include playing rugby for his local team and also spends his time mountain biking the beautiful hills of North Wales. During the pandemic, Hefin has played an important role servicing the community by juggling his various commitments around working full-time at the local butcher shop.
In the future, Hefin hopes to visit successful farming businesses in different parts of the globe to learn best practises from others experiences in order to expand his understanding of agriculture. His aim beyond this is to be able to milk his very own herd.
"Being part of the Agri Academy, I hope to be able to broaden my understanding of the agricultural world by learning from industry experts and also my peers. By taking on this new information and experiences I hope to be able to feed it back into the family farm”.
