About Ioan Humphreys

Ioan manages a 500-acre farm that has been in his family since 1903, and now has 850 ewes (Welsh Mountain, Welsh Speckled Face, Texel, Suffolk and Welsh Mules), 20 cattle (Hereford, Angus and British Blue suckler cows with a pedigree Limousin bull) and 32,000 laying hens. Ioan’s favourite part of farming is working with the animals, seeing them grow and improve throughout the year, as well as improving the land. He also enjoys speaking to others about farming and often holds open days at the hen shed for agriculture students and other farmers who are looking to diversify into poultry.
