How to Apply

We have a share farming opportunity here in Carmarthenshire.

Wernlwyd (SA33 6QN) is a 23-acre smallholding.  We currently raise sheep for mutton and have also been raising cattle for beef, venturing into the extreme hanging market.

However, we also run a B&B with event weekends, often with a Celtic Christian theme, and have other interests which require our attention.  This means we are not able to develop the farm to its potential.

Plainly, no-one makes a living off 23 acres simply raising sheep or milking. So we need a share farmer with ambition and a breadth of vision for niche marketing and innovation.

We currently see potential for buying in cull animals for extreme-aged beef and mutton, for horticulture, poultry, rose veal, cider, teaching and tourism.  But there may be more we can do working with the right person.

We think this is a great opportunity for someone coming out of college with agricultural qualifications.  As well as an aptitude for farming, the successful applicant will also need people management skills to engage with visitors
and to motivate and organise the WOOF volunteers who turn up through the year.  Comfortable on-site accommodation is available.
