The beautiful unspoilt countryside of Shropshire is home to Clun Valley Organics(CVO).
It is the inspiration of father and son, Trevor and Paul Wheeler, whose family have been at Brynmawr Farm since Victorian times, when Trevor’s great grandfather farmed there .
We have organic certificate by Soil Association since 2003 and from there, our effort is to produce meat and vegetables preserving and improving the environment.
Our farm is very dynamic with many opportunities available to people on holiday, schools, hospitals, students, farmers or everyone individually or in groups.
Through care farming we at Brynmawr aim for individuals to realise their full potential, whatever disadvantages life has thrown at them. We believe that engaging with and caring for animals, tending to plants and vegetables and performing simple productive tasks can help an individual to address their emotional, social and educational needs, growing and learning through farm activities.
This applies to all children and adults, whether they have mental health issues, difficulty remaining in a school or other life problems. Older children and adults will also gain from basic work experience and all will develop some practical skills.
