Bryn Cocyn is a small, upland mixed farm in the shelter of Moel Fodiar, looking out into the Vale of Clwyd.
The land is strong, fertile clay, which allows us to grow organic crops of oats and legumes for winter feed.
Bryn Cocyn is Joyce’s family farm and was registered with the Soil Association for Organic conversion in 1989. We are also tenants on some nearby hill land, which we have farmed organically since 1978.
Farmers’ Markets have been both a lifeline and a pleasure to us and have been the catalyst, which has changed our farming practice towards the more balanced, mixed system we have always wanted.
A recent venture has been the planting of nearly two acres of apples, pears and plums as a part of the North East Wales Orchards Initiative. So! In a few years time when the trees begin to crop, we hope to be selling revived Welsh varieties of fruit and also fruit juice and cider perhaps.
Another new interest is vegetable growing. We hope this may be a pattern for sustainable agriculture: growing fruit, vegetables and cereals on the good land and allowing the poorer land to yield what it does best naturally!
We believe that a high-yielding, efficient agriculture is essential to match Earth’s populations, but only to the extent that the land, her laws of use-and-return and shrinking fossil and mineral resources can sustain!
