Evan Jones is a member of a farming family that has lived in and around the valley of Afon Groes, west of Tregaron, for generations. He was brought up on nearby Glanrafon Isaf, and he, and wife Alice, took over Tanrallt Uchaf from his uncle in 1985. Until retiring 5 years ago, he combined farming more than 200 acres here with a full time job at the Welsh Water Board.
Today he has over 600 pure Welsh Mountain breeding ewes that can range from lush fields down in the valley to the hills above. Much of the lamb he produces goes into the Cambrian Mountains Lamb scheme.
