Welsh Farms Introduction

There are a diverse range of farms in Wales with some being arable, others farming stock including beef, pigs and deer. There are also many sheep farms and you will also find equine farms where a range of horse breeds are reared.

Most Counties in Wales will contain a variety of these farms but most arable farming is now contained to the low lying areas in mid, south and north east Wales.

On the hills you will now find mostly sheep farming with a scattering of traditional old Welsh breed cattle also. Dairy and beef farming is mostly carried out in the lower lying areas of Wales.

Arable Farms

If you enjoy seeing fields of crops then a stay on an arable farm will be just the ticket. Welsh arable farms produce crops such as barley, potatoes, wheat and sugarbeat. Look for areas such as Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Monmouthshire and north east Wales and you should find some examples of arable farms.

Dairy Farms

Wales is responsible for around 10% of the milk produced in the UK with Carmarthenshire being the largest milk producing County within Wales. You will find many cheese makers situated in areas of high milk production and the Counties to head for are Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.

Stock Farms

Beef, pig and deer are the main production for most stock farms in Wales with Beef being the largest of the three. Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and north east Wales are probably the best of the areas to head for if locally reared meats are your fancy.

Sheep Farms

If you prefer your holidays to be a little bit wild and woolly, then take to the hills and stay on a working sheep farm. Wales has no shortage of hills and mountains with plenty of accommodation to suit. Areas to visit would be the Brecon Beacons National Park, Pembrokeshire's Preseli Hills, upland Carmarthenshire and the Snowdonia National Park in north wales.

Equine Farms

You will find equine farms in all reaches of Wales, some breeding the traditional Welsh pony's and cob's and other opting for more modern breeds. Many of the accommodation owners on this site have stables and breed their own horses. Some will even accommodate your horses should you wish to bring them on a holiday too - just give our friendly staff a ring on 01239 821 910 for more information.
