What's new? If you often dream of packing it all in and moving to the country to raise rare-breed pigs, why not do everyone a favour and book the whole family in for a Smallholding Experience weekend at the amazing Cwmcrwth Farm in Carmarthenshire’s Towy Valley to see if you’re actually cut out for it?

Rob and Fiona Park run the farm, where they raise Oxford Sandy and Black pigs, Highland cattle and Cotswold sheep in an impressively traditional and ethical wat.

They run a whole series of courses, including the Smallholding Experience, from £180 per person, which will put you in the driving seat for two days to try out your dream – including 5am starts.
