The Good Day Out

Seeing a dedicated sheep dog moving a flock of sheep around the fields is an amazing sight. Come and learn the skills to work a sheep dog with a farmer and his wife on their traditional hill farm in the Black Mountains near Crickhowell. You will accompany Brian on his routine on the farm - checking the sheep, feeding and moving them around the fields with the help of one of the farm’s three working collies. You will learn the traditional sheep dog working commands and have a go at using them to work the dogs yourself. The event ends with drinks and home made cake in the farm kitchen and a chance to chat to about farming in the stunning environment of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Please note that there are only two upcoming dates at the moment for this activity with very limited spaces.
