Caerfai Farm gets a couple of mentions in The Guardian travel section

Anyone who has been to St Davids knows there are some pretty good restaurants and cafés in the area and its nice to get some mentions in the national press.  Caerfai Farm also gets a couple of mentions (see The Sampler Tea room and The Bench). In addition (but not mentioned) we also supply The Cwtch, The Sound and Food and Wine with our cheeses so all in all Caerfai doesn’t do too badly out of this article! Click on the link to take a...

Lely robot at Caerfai.

Lely robot at Caerfai.

We have been using the Lely robotic milking machine for just over a year now.  Each cow wears a collar which identifies them – the robot detects whether they need milking or not.  It also holds their personal info (their weight, how old they are, their body stats!) The cows get a good feed whilst they are being milked. Graham (the herdsman) and Dad get a detailed account of how much milk each cow is producing. A time-lapse film of the cows in...

Potato picking video in stunning hi-def. . . possibly

Posted by on May 28, 2011 in The Farm | 0 comments

The last blog post mentioned that our new potato crop (Colleen variety) would be ready for picking by the end of May.  Well it’s the end of May and they are ready so we thought we’d pick them. (I’m using the royal ‘we’ as I haven’t actually picked any. . . yet) I shall therefore attempt to attach some video of the picking in full swing for all those interested. The filming, incidentally, was carried out by dad (Wyn) multi tasking, as he was also the tractor driver. * CAERFAI ORGANIC POTATOES AVAILABLE...
