Barry Gray from Woodlands Farm e-mailed about a recent visit to the farm by children from the Welsh School London and representatives of the Farmers Union of Wales which was filmed by the S4C TV channel for their Ffermio programme. Barry wrote:

Because of our Welsh connection, (our manager, Dai Jones is from Ceridigion and is a native Welsh speaker), we had a visit from the Farmers Union of Wales and children from the London Welsh School for a totally Welsh speaking visit on January 29th. The report of the visit has just appeared on the Welsh speaking channel SC4 on a programme called “Ffermio”.

I append a link to the programme http://www.s4c.co.uk/clic/e_level2.shtml?series_id=503056891 This is episode 5, the piece about the farm begins at 17.00 mins into the programme and you can get English sub titles by pressing “S” on the bar!

It’s an interesting programme, all in Welsh with English sub-sitles, and I learned  some new things about the farm and that the Welsh for guinea pig is guinea pig. It is available to view on the S4C web site for another 32 days.
