About Us at Llysyfran farm

GwenRichie and I purchased the farm in 1999 and since then we have been trying to build up a pedigree Welsh Black herd.  The pedigree herd name is ‘Syfynwy’. The river Syfynwy flows through Llysyfran and is a tributary of the Eastern Cleddau.  This is a picture of Gwen our first Welsh Black cow.

Over previous generations the stone-built outbuildings were used for milking the cows, and for keeping horses in the old, stone-built stable. By today the standards required for animal welfare, modern machinery, health and safety etc are such that the outbuildings can no longer be used for farming purposes.  Neither is there any land around the farmyard, therefore, the cows would have had to walk the road to get to the fields.  This would have meant them walking to and from milking twice a day. To this end we have therefore created a new farmyard with purpose built cattle housing and machinery storage facilities in a more central location to the farm land.

The farm is situated in the heart of the rural village of Llysyfran.  The village is situated near the Preseli Hills and central for touring the whole of Pembrokeshire. Its beautiful coastline, castles, museums, potteries and many other places of interest are all within easy driving distance.  On the boundary of the farm lies the Llysyfran reservoir and country park which has excellent facilities for fishing, boating and bird watching as well as a seven mile walk or cycle ride around its perimeter.
