Our family has been running a business from the site since 1977. We began as a Dairy Farm, milking 100 cows and 200 sheep on our 140 acres. In 1991, we diversified into a Sawmill and Horse Bedding Production facility.
We are proud of our location in the shadow of Moel Famau, part of the beautiful Clwydian Range (AONB). We want to share this fantastic location with you all by offering a trail over the paths and fields... and accompanying a Miniature donkey is a bonus for you!
The trail is roughly 1 mile long and reaches up to 1,000ft above sea level at its highest point. The first half of the walk involves a gradual climb as we overlook Llanferres village, Loggerheads and Colomendy. Higher up and further afield, we see The Wirral, Flint, Deeside and Liverpool. There will be opportunities to take in the view from our bespoke, handmade benches and plenty of chances for photos with the Donkeys.
A variety of trees will be seen during the trail. Some vast and ancient Sycamore, Beech and Ash trees and others more recently donated by the Wildlife Trust, North Wales. Various Silver Birch, Oak, Rowan, Hornbeam, Hazel and Scots pine were donated to help reduce flooding further down the River Alyn catchment and make the trail beautiful! We are actively trying to support our local habitat and have planted wildflowers along the trail to encourage birds and bees to visit us, too!
