East Pilton Farm

Have you ever bottle fed a lamb or

watched a cow having a hair cut?

Well now’s your chance to have a go!

Experience life on a real working farm in Wales!

 We offer fabulous accommodation with modern living and the chance to get stuck into life on the farm!  We will provide the farm life and you can choose to watch from the side lines, or enjoy the full hands-on experience!

East Pilton Farm has been in the Jones family for 4 generations. The farm is home to a long established flock of pedigree Suffolk sheep which are sold for breeding. Spring visitors enjoy bottle feeding our latest arrivals. We are also very proud of our Limousin herd of cattle, who can be seen grazing quietly in the fields surrounding the cottage. No two days are the same on the farm and  jobs to be done are very much dependent on the weather.
