Some of the Farm History and Schemes we belong to.

Tynybryn was built as the home farm of the Gregynog Estate, and the handsome buildings are listed for their special architectural characteristics

Tynybryn is situated in the heart of Mid Wales. We are a beef and sheep family farm with a stud standing two thoroughbreds (Aspect & Honour's Degree) and a part bred (Drayton) we produce hunters, eventers and show horses.

We are about four miles from Newtown (see map). The farm is made up from three farms, Tynybryn is the home farm, Church House Farm and Dolfor Hill.

We have got a commercial flock of  1800 ewes mainly Welsh Halfbred, first, second and three-quarter Texel Cross and a Pedigree Flock of 120 Texel sheep producing Rams to use in our commercial flock and to sell.

We are members of the Farm Assured Welsh Livestock (FAWL) which means that our farm and farming practice have to be up to a certain standard. A Vet visits our farm every year to inspect our animal recording records, the farm it self, sheds where we keep animal feed and anything that might be relevant. If our farm meets all the requirements we can sell our stock as Farm Assured. This farm assurance for all stock means that you can be sure of the highest standards of animal welfare and quality.
We have been members of this scheme since it was introduced about 14 years ago.

We are members of the National Scrapie Plan (NSP) for Great Britain. The aim is to reduce and eventually eliminate Scrapie from the national sheep flock. (See National Scrapie Plan)

Our Pedigree Texel Flock is Maedi Visna Accredited. We have to be members of this scheme to be able to show and sell our Texel Sheep. To become Maedi Visna Accredited our Texel sheep have to be blood tested every year.
