News & media exploits!
We’d love to have one of those swanky news pages with lovely PDF versions of the articles we’ve been featured in for you to read right here and now (perhaps even with turning pages)… sounds so easy… but sadly it’s not.
So – liking the simple things in life – I’m afraid for the time being all we can put here are links to some of the features and articles we’ve appeared in… if you’d like to read them in the flesh, why not pop along to a course? I’ll happily show you my clippings!
Our TV Work
It all started with the BBC’s first ever Lambing Live.
That catapulted us into the world of TV filming, voice-over recordings and make-up ladies! Since then Great Tre-Rhew has appeared on TV many times, Kate became the One Show’s resident farmer and she now covers health and welfare issues at Crufts for Channel 4 (or as she calls it: “My annual lambing holiday!”)
Check out our YouTube channel to see just a few of our broadcast appearances.
Kate’s take on topical issues, seasonal challenges and all things farming: there’s always plenty to write about!
Crossing Borders: Inspirational Women
Kate is one of 21 inspirational women living along the Wales-England border featured in this book by Julia Gregson and Alex Pownell.

South Wales Argus, August 1st 2012
The lovely Kath Skellon produced this very informative article after a chat (which went on a long time). Thank you Kath.
NFU Countryside magazine, June 2012
Kate’s first (and probably only) shot at being a coverstar! Thank you Martin and Laura for a great write up and thanks to Adam for the lovely pictures. More of which can be found here.
The Western Mail’s Sally Williams included this article in Country and Farming; it’s a great intro to what we do (shame they’ve left the photos off the online version, but there’s plenty for you to see in our gallery).
South Wales Argus, March 6th 2012
Our first centre spread! All about new life on Welsh farms and the “unusual” ways farmers in Monmouthshire are finding to make an income. “Unusual”? Us? Never!
BBC Radio Wales, Jamie Owen and Louise Elliott (9am weekdays), February 3rd 2012
Our first time on live radio – we’d never even been near a radio studio before – so it went OK, though we say it ourselves.
The Western Mail paid us a visit literally days before we opened Kate’s Country School – it was a little hectic at the time but we hope the photographer’s shoes recovered!
Country Life, February 29th 2012
We’ve even had a brief mention in Country Life; amazing, but sadly too small to be on their website… maybe next time?
You’ll find Kate and her pitchfork on page 22, but why not flick through the other pages too? There’s so much to see and do in our lovely corner of the country.
Written just after Lambing Live, this puts what we do into a proper farming perspective; after all, farming is our family’s life and livelihood, not TV appearances (though we love the mix!)

We promise we’ll never share your details, never use your information for anything else and we’ll keep it safe… so will Lass (the collie), she’s great at keeping an eye on things!
