What is Brithdir Mawr?


As stewards of this 80 acre farm, we aim to live our lives working with, rather than against nature: we keep goats, ducks, chickens and bees, we produce fruit and veg in poly-tunnels and gardens working to organic principles. We coppice wood for fuel, bake bread, preserve produce, and use our own materials such as wood and willow for craftwork. We take care of the land, recycle and conserve resources. We use compost loos and are off the grid for electricity and water.

Being a community is a large part of what we do.

In the course of our communal and personal lives we choose to consider our decisions with these 3 principles in mind:

To work towards a lifestyle that leaves the local and global environment healthier for future generations.

We want the benefits of collective living to outweigh the difficulties; so that working together is easier and more enjoyable than working separately; and so that we will can flourish and feel at home.

To share and exchange skills and experience to help others and ourselves move towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
