Watch Teleri introduce you to her Welsh Black cattle, or as she calls them – the farm’s ‘biodiversity warriors’! As a hill farmer who’s passionate about looking after the environment, one of Teleri’s main goals is to improve biodiversity.
Along with her sheepdog Roy, Teleri explains how she protects, promotes and connects the different habitats on her farm – providing wildlife with plenty of options to choose where to eat, rest, breed, sleep – and thrive.
About Teleri and her Farm
29 year old Teleri is a ‘first generation farmer’ who, despite not growing up on a farm, has always wanted to be in agriculture – announcing to her Mum at the age of four that she wanted to be a ‘lady farmer’! Teleri runs a 600 acre hill farm in Snowdonia with her sheepdog Roy.
‘Llyndy Isaf’ is a National Trust sheep and beef farm with a strong emphasis on conservation, as well as giving young farmers their first step on the farming ladder through an apprenticeship scheme with Wales YFC.
