AM visits Abergele farm to discuss future of Welsh farming post Brexit

Clwyd West Assembly Member Darren Millar visited a Conwy farm this week to see their woodland and to hear their views on the future of Welsh farming post Brexit.

Darren called in at Bron Haul Farm, Groesffordd Marli, Abergele, for a chat with farmers David Brown and Ruth Pybus, who discussed how they might be able to share their best practice of managing farm woodland productively and how to make forestry and woodland more prominent in the Welsh Government agenda.

Darren said:

“I am extremely proud to have this fantastic farm here in my constituency and It was great to meet with David and Ruth and to discuss issues and concerns regarding farming.

“As we leave the EU we need to make sure that Brexit works for our farmers and it was therefore good to chat with David and Ruth to hear their views about woodland and forestry faming outside the EU.

“As the Prime Minister has stated ‘Once we leave the EU on 31st October, we will have a historic opportunity to introduce new schemes to support farming – and we will make sure that farmers gets a better deal.’

David Brown and Ruth Pybus said:

“We are excited about the land-use changes that will be made possible by Brexit. We would like to share our expertise in managing productive mixed broadleaf farm woodland and spread the vision for a carbon neutral Wales.”
