Organic Farming at Treberfedd
Organic Agriculture is a sustainable way of farming. It means producing healthy food whilst leaving the goodness in the land for future generations.
At Treberfedd we farm according to organic principles. We do not use artificial fertilisers or pesticides on the land or crops and follow strict organic standards which ensure high levels of animal welfare.
We use red and white clover and natural animal manures to return goodness and fertility to the soil. A healthy soil grows healthy plants. These are the plants which feed our cows and sheep – we are sure you will taste the difference in our organic beef and lamb!
The land at Treberfedd supports a rich variety of plants and wildlife as well as our organic beef and sheep farm. The hedgerows and field margins are managed sensitively to provide habitats for native wildflowers and herbs, insects, butterflies, birds, bats and small animals.
Over the last 10 years we have restored traditional wildflower hay meadows on the farm and planted over 14,000 trees. This has created a whopping 20 acres of new woodland which is free for you to explore.
The tree planting also makes a huge contribution to offsetting our CO2 emissions. The woods also provide home grown firewood for the holiday cottages and habitats for wildlife. Guests at Treberfedd are welcome to follow the nature trail through the woodlands and fields at anytime and guided walks of the farm are also available.
