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 partnership with the Federation of Wales Young Farmer's Clubs, we are providing an annual 13-month scholarship for a young farmer to gain valuable conservation-farming experience at Llyndy Isaf.
Training is a vital part of the scholarship and neighbouring Hafod y Llan Farm Manager, Arwyn Owen is also on hand to offer guidance.
The first Llyndy Isaf scholar, Caryl Hughes and her sheepdog Mist managed the farm from September 2013 - 14.
Current scholar, Tudur Parry
After winning the scholarship in July 2014, Tudur Parry, a 21 year-old from Garndolbenmaen is currently farming Llyndy Isaf.
He started in September and set to work by gathering the sheep down from the slopes to wean the lambs from their mothers, ensuring the lambs were treated for worms, ticks and lice and their tails trimmed.
Third Llyndy scholar announced
In September 2015 we’ll be seeing new scholar Owain Glyn Jones move into Llyndy Isaf.
For the first month, Tudur and Owain will work together; learning about the farm and flock. Owain has had previous experience with sheep and cattle at home, he’s now looking forward to take on the challenge on his own.
Actor Matthew Rhys mucks in at Llyndy
Welsh Hollywood actor, Matthew Rhys, rolled up his sleeves and helped out on the farm during a visit to Llyndy Isaf in June 2014.
