Fferm Rhiwaedog Farm Facts
"We are preparing ourselves for the day when there will be no subsidies. We know that day will come so through our work with Farming Connect we aim to learn how best to achieve this. We hope it will help us focus on areas of the farm that can be improved on so that the business can be in a stronger position to face the uncertainties ahead of us with Brexit."
