ABOUT THE LANDOWNER
Paviland Farm, a traditional family farm based in beautiful Gower, South Wales, is looking for a Grower to develop its Market Garden.
Our Market Garden operation was born in 2020, and since then we have been growing high quality vegetables primarily for local restaurants, but also for a small number of shops and veg boxes.

We are passionate about growing quality food for local markets and helping food and farming become more sustainable. We have a good local network, plus a website and social media presence.
Our aim is to find an ambitious partner who shares our passion and wants to take the business forward – ideally on a rental basis, to allow us to step back, or as a joint venture to be agreed.
