Aberhyddnant is a 200 acre family run, organic farm. We keep beef cattle, sheep, a few hens and have two holiday cottages. We are lucky to have our children also running businesses from the farm.
There are three generations of Matthews’ happily living at Aberhyddnant. Paul and Liz who live in the main farm house, their daughters Bethan and Nicola and now their grandson Lloyd.
The family first moved to the farm from Atherstone in 1983 and together worked to rebuild a long neglected farm into a productive area of land able to support the family and conserve the beautiful local countryside.
We try to be as self sufficient as possible, producing our own feed for the horses and livestock, our own meat and eggs for the house and for sale plus each year we try hard to grow our own vegetables. We have even installed a Micro-Hydro unit to supply electricity, solar thermal water heating and a biomas batch boiler with all the logs used for fuel are from fallen trees or thinnings.
All of us, people and animals, love welcoming visitors to the farm and are happy to spend time talking about the farm and the joys of living in the part of the world. MEET THE CREW
