Geraint Evans

Geraint Evans is one of the four Cambrian Lamb members based in the valley of the Afon Groes, just west of Tregaron. He owns over 200 acres that stretch from the riverside up onto the southern slopes. Like his neighbours he makes use of the common grazing land higher up the valley, overlooked by the ancient Iron Age fort of Castell Rhyfel.

He has around 320 breeding ewes and 80 replacement ewe lambs. He also keeps a dozen cattle; a number he plans to increase using some recently acquired neighbouring land.

He is the fourth generation of his family to farm here. He combines this withworking part time for a local feed company. He and his fiancée, a teacher in Tregaron, have two young daughters.
