Llyndy Isaf farm
Llyndy Isaf, an extraordinary 614-acre upland farm and home to the legend of the Welsh dragon was bought by donations to the Snowdonia Appeal early in 2012.
The successful £1 million fundraising campaign was supported by Welsh actor Mathew Rhys in his role as Snowdonia Appeal Ambassador.
More than 20,000 people donated to the cause, helping ensure this special place will be looked after for generations to come.
In a unique arrangement with Wales Young Farmers Club, we will be providing an annual scholarship for a young farmer to gain valuable conservation-farming experience at Llyndy Isaf.
Our first ever Llyndy Isaf Scholar Farm Manager, Caryl Hughes and her sheepdog Mist moved in to the farm in September 2013 and will stay to manage the land for 12 months until she passes the keys over to the next winner to be announced at the Royal Welsh Show in 2014.

Caryl who has settled in well and is hard at work managing the farm said: 'I’m sure I will look back on the scholarship with pride and the experience will live with me forever'.
