Ty'r Eithin Farm
Organic farming (Environment)
Ty’r Eithin Farm lies in the beautiful Gwendraeth Valley in West Wales. It produces milk, beef and lamb. It also provides sheltered workplaces for adults with learning disabilities.
Organic agriculture recognises the relationship between our environment, our health and the food we eat. As well as high animal welfare standards, organics avoids the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers and helps to revitalize the earth. And, because organic farming releases less greenhouse gases than non-organic farming, it means a smaller carbon footprint for the environment. Lending in this sector varies from dairy and meat, to forestry and fruit.
