Keep Up With What’s Happening Here On The Farm...

A mix of information about the countryside, the farming year and snippets of family life here at Great Tre-rhew… sign up for our newsletter and keep in touch.

We promise we won’t overload your inbox, we’ll never share your details and we’ll guard them with our life... or at least Lass will, she’s very good at keeping an eye on stuff!

Clippings and cloppings!

We’d love to have one of those swanky news pages with lovely PDF versions of the articles we’ve been featured in for you to read right here and now (perhaps even with turning pages)… sounds so easy… but sadly it’s not.

So – liking the simple things in life – I’m afraid for the time being all we can put here are links to some of the features and articles we’ve appeared in… if you’d like to read them in the flesh, why not pop along to a course?  I’ll happily show you my clippings!
