Provider Profile

(An outline of the opportunity being provided)


Venture Reference Number: 858


75+ years old

Welsh speaker

My wife and I purchased the farm as a place to live and bring up our boys in the early 1970’s.
The farm was not our main activity but the cattle were steadily improved and the horns were removed by breeding. We have ended up with a naturally polled herd, which we believe is a match for any herd in the breed.

The pedigree herd is farmed on a commercial basis by myself and our son, whilst my wife looks after the office.

If my wife and I step back from the farm, our son who is over 50 years of age does not feel he could do justice to the farm on his own, as he has other commitments and needs another partner.


Our goals for the next 5 years:

Step back from day-to-day management of the farm

A person passionate in Cattle Breeding in all it’s aspects, who would enjoy taking in improving the herd even further.
