The farm at Llanerchaeron
Self-sufficiency was at the heart of Llanerchaeron when the property was first commissioned, which is evident in the design of the courtyard and in particular the service courtyard. The farm was no exception with the stockyard perfectly designed to house and rear the livestock to supply the estate with beef, milk, lamb and pork as well as cereal crops.
What you’ll see on the farm today
When you visit Llanerchaeron you’ll see many different species of farm animals, all traditional breeds including Llanwenog sheep, Welsh pigs and Welsh cobs. You’ll see them housed on the stockyard and in the surrounding buildings, bringing the farm to life and demonstrating what that relationships would have been like between the house, service courtyard and the farm.
Caring for our animals and the environment
The farm is enrolled in several farm assurances schemes ensuring that our livestock receive a high standard of care and quality of life.
Our traditional breeds are ideally suited to graze our protected habitats like the historic parkland at the front of the house and our flower rich hay meadows between the Mydr and Aeron rivers.
We encourage biodiversity on the farm, offering a variety of farmland birds and wildlife suitable habitats as well as helping the farm be more self-sufficient by producing our winter feed on the farm.
