The Plas Llanfair Story
We moved to Plas Llanfair as a family in 1999, attracted by the property’s idyllic setting and its traditional (but at that time dilapidated buildings).
Small enclosures of land here are bordered by traditional dry stonewalling, native hedgerows and trees. There is a diverse range of species and habitats and we have run the smallholding with strict attention to this environmental sensitivity and within an organic system.
The land at Plas Llanfair is of environmental interest. Until recently we were a member of the Soil Association and continue to uphold its values and principles with the management of our 8 acres. Our small scale fruit growing provides ingredients for our jams and chutneys.
We are part of the Welsh countryside conservation and protection scheme, Tir Gofal, and hold the Green Dragon Level 2 certification in recognition for effective environmental management. This standard is made up of five steps each incorporating the key elements of planning, Taking Action, Checking Progress and Reviewing Achievements to realise continual environmental improvement.
