About Us

Tyn Llwyfan Farm is situated at the foothills of the Carneddau Range- the most northern part of the Snowdonia Park.

Situated above the quarry village of Llanfairfechan and overlooking the beautiful views of the North Wales coast, the farm is situated just below a Celtic hill fort called “Dinas”. Sheep graze amongst Celtic cairns and burial mounds while the protected, and well-loved Carneddau Mountain Ponies; a rare native breed, roam the wild on the wonderful Carneddau Mountians.

Astonishingly the farmstead site has been archeologically proved to be the first axe “factory” in the world, dating back to 6000 BC.

Tyn Llwyfan is steeped in history. The Jones family have farmed the land for over 370years. Gareth is outspoken and passionate about his livelihood, seeking to educate about sustainable and seasonal food, faming its heritage and time-honoured traditions. He is also a best-selling author, a regular contributor on social media and is known as the “tweeting famer”. He features on mainstream television including BBC Countryfile, Escape to the Country, Come Dine with me, Snowdonia 1890, Bafta nominated The Hill Farm and Netflix ‘s Jack Whitehall- “Travels with my Father.”

"Watching my granddaughter Molly help "The Hill Farmer" Gareth Wyn Jones herd sheep with his sheep dog in Wales. This was an experience Molly will never forget. I remembered to video the experience, as this was a once-in-a-lifetime thrill for Molly, who loves all animals. We each bought Mr. Jones's book and wonder how to watch his TV show from the States..."
