The current owners have been at the property since 2003 and have run a hobby farm with a variety of animals including horses, cattle, sheep, goats and poultry. Although not registered as organic, the farm has been managed in an organic manner for the past seventeen years and the current owners have enjoyed and actively encouraged the rich variety of wildlife on the farm which includes many varieties of birds, a large badger sett, fallow deer and bats.

Several small patches of Japanese Knotweed have been identified on the farm and are being treated by a specialist company.

Although very secluded, the farm is extremely accessible lying only eight miles from the M4 at Pont Abraham and 4.5 miles from the A48 dual carriageway at Crosshands. Ammanford and Llandeilo offer useful ranges of local shops, supermarkets, schools, etc. with more extensive facilities available further afield in Carmarthen and Swansea.
