Jamie’s Farm, Monmouth

Nestled above the stunning Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean is our third rural site, Duffields Farm. Our first location in Wales, Offa’s Dyke Path runs down the middle of our land and the English border hugs a stream along the farm’s boundary.

The farm is run on a small-scale and in a sustainable way that enhances the ecology of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean next door. Livestock includes a flock of Lleyn ewes and a smaller group of Suffolks, together with a small herd of Beef Shorthorns. As well as our chickens and ducks, there’ll soon be Pedigree Welsh pigs, goats and a house Jersey cow for our own dairy needs. Our kitchen garden – with amazing views over the valley – provides us with as much of the fruit and vegetables as we can grow.

We have a small hillside woodland, which visiting young people will help us to manage for our firewood and for greenwood projects too. We’re looking forward to getting to know more of the local community, and are very grateful for the warm welcome already received. Our first school visits at Jamie’s Farm Monmouth will take place in January 2018.
