Pembrokeshire Monitor Farm

Tom Rees Leaning On Gate

Working in partnership with his father, Tom Rees farms the mixed 280ha Dudwell Farm in Haverfordwest. His flexible arable rotation includes winter wheat, oilseed rape, spring barley and potatoes, with oats on the heavier land. During the last three years Tom has gained a huge amount from being a part of the Cardiff Monitor Farm group. He is now very keen to develop his own business through being the Pembrokeshire monitor farmer. He particularly hopes to look at soil health and the long-term impact potatoes have on the soil, as well as implementing more precision farming techniques and improving crop marketing.
