DolphinsWe have a rich crop of wildlife here in West Wales. Cardigan Bay Dolphins can sometimes even be seen from the pier at New Quay; lazy seals who like to steal mackerel from your fish hooks lounge around on the rocks; buzzards and red kite are abundant, they swoop and dive; and of course during the summer, the swallows come back and fill the skies.

Organic Farming

We are not the only organic farm in this area, there are many.  Organic farming is good for wildlife and good for the planet.  It is sustainable as it does not rely on fertilizers and chemicals which are derived from oil.
