ABOUT THE LANDOWNER

51 – 60 years old

Non-Welsh speaker

Diversified Established farm business 300-acre total land holding

Seeks either share farmer or working farm manager to take this interesting business forward.

The farm currently grows cereals and has a small sheep flock but has recently focussed on diversified events growing Christmas trees, pumpkins and running a maize and sunflower event through the summer. There are currently 10000 Facebook followers.

This has been built up over the past few years and there is considerable scope to increase the offering to the public both in food and leisure events.

However, at 60 the owner wishes to be able to leave the day to day running in safe hands whilst wishing to see the business expand and improve.

There would appear to be other opportunities in PYO /Polytunnel horticulture and also improving the current livestock enterprises.

Other enterprises include medium scale renewable energy production and rental property.
 

Goals for the next 5 years:

  1. Reduce my working hours and give myself ability to travel and pursue some non-business interests.
  2. See the business improve and expand.
