The Powell Family
In the heart of the Radnor Valley, in Radnorshire, Powys, Mid Wales, Powell's Farm sits amongst the rolling green hills on the edge of the Radnor Forest surrounded by natural beauty. The Powell family have been farming here since 1974. Over the years we have added to the farm land to create a sustainable farm business ready for the next generation - that is us!
We are an upland farm, with a fantastic array of natural habitats bursting with natural flora and fauna. As well as all of the wildlife which reside here, the farm is home to a flock mischievous sheep and a herd of charming cows who produce the finest welsh lamb and beef. Our livestock are cared for everyday with great care and attention and to what we believe are the highest standards of health and welfare in the world. You can also find Dixie the donkey, our pampered ponies, a couple of playful pigs, some cheeky chickens and our cunning cats roaming around the farm at different times of the year. And last but by no means least is our workforce, the farm dogs, who we would be lost without - Richie, Blue and Fly.
At Powells Farm Wales we feel incredibly lucky that we get to do what we love everyday but it's time for a change and we are starting with a small pick your own pumpkin patch for the October half term in 2020. We’d love for you to join in and follow the Powells Farm Wales journey as we venture into the world of pumpkins, chutneys and much more.............
This is our first year growing pumpkins on the farm and due to Covid-19 we decided to do a small pick your own pumpkin patch experiment with 9 different varieties, using different planting techniques to see which grows best on our farm as pumpkins are not usually grown in Radnorshire. But we have pumpkins and we are immensely proud of the ones we have grown. We may be a small pumpkin patch but they are mighty pumpkins. It has been a huge learning curve but we have a pumpkin patch which is very special to us and we have been working hard to make sure that you will enjoy your visit to our farm. We hope that you enjoy your visit and whilst you are here please tell us what you would like to see next year and we will be back bigger and better.
