The oldest organic farm in North Wales

Bryn Cocyn is a small mixed farm in the shelter of Moel Fodiar, overlooking the Vale of Clwyd.   We have sheep, cattle, cereals, apples, soft fruit and vegetables

Joyce’s was born and bred at Bryn Cocyn, which has been in her family for three generations. We have farmed here organically, since 1989 and are also tenants on some nearby hill land, which we have farmed organically since 1978.

Our aim has been to grow in a way that will allow future generations to do the same – to add as little as we can to climate change, to contribute to our community and to avoid the amorality – even immorality of commodity markets.

Farmers’ Markets  and the people and ideas we meet there, have been a lifeline and a pleasure to us. They’ve been the catalyst to change our farming towards the more balanced, mixed system we have always wanted.

We believe that a high-yielding, efficient agriculture is essential to match the need for good food, but only to the extent that the soil and her laws of use-and-return can sustain!  Bon Apetite!

Fferm fechan ar dir uwch yn lloches Foel Fodiar, sy’n edrych dros Ddyffryn Clwyd yw Bryn Cocyn.

Mae’r tir yn gleiog, sy’n caniatau i ni dyfu cnydau organig fel ceirch ar gyfer porthiant gaeaf.

Rydym hefyd yn rhentu tir sy’n cael ei ffermio i annog amrywiaeth o laswellt brodorol a llysiau. Buom yn ffermio yn organig ers 1978.

Fferm deuluol Joyce yw Bryn Cocyn, ac fe’i cofrestrwyd gyda’r Soil Association yn 1989.

Gobeithiwn y bydd hyn yn batrwm amaethyddol cynaladwy: gan ddefnyddio’r mathau diweddaraf o ydau, glaswellt  a chlofer ar y tir da a chaniatau i’r tir salach gynchyrchu’r hyn mae’n ei wneud orau yn naturiol.

Credwn fod amaethyddiaeth sy’n cynhyrchu cnydau mawr, effeithlon yn hanfodol i gyd-fynd a phoblogaeth y byd cyn belled ag y gall y tir a’i gyfreithiau ei gynnal.

Bon Appetite!
