Hello everyone. This is an overview of our first 10 years on site…

We moved on to our 5 acres at Cae Felyn, Old Hall, in Autumn 2011. A lot has changed since then. The development of the land had been documented regularly in our blog, unfortunately the old website corrupted. But that gave us a great opportunity to look back through old pictures and compile  a selection that summerise the conversion of 5 acres of Welsh grassland into a diverse productive market garden.
