Who we are & where we live

We are Suzi & Joe Drew, with our boys & Suzi's Dad Tom we moved to Mid Wales in November 2018. 

We found Pantmaenog Farm almost by accident. And we've never been happier!

Pantmaenog is a bit special, a 60 acre hill farm that has been preserved without the use of chemical pesticides for the past 100 years. Located on the Belan hill above Cwmbelan a tiny hamlet overlooking the thriving market town of Llanidloes, we share this place with the amazing wildlife, our horses, very tame sheep and dogs.

Location
