Farming in Snowdonia has become less attractive to new generations after harsh conditions and international competition have put many farmers off. A short film by the Progress Film Company has championed the work of local farmers in the help to conserve an integral part of Welsh heritage.
A short film has been made to explore the decline of rural agricultural communities in North Wales.
It hopes to ‘shine light’ on a host of unique and compelling stories that share the common themes of memory, time and loss.
Film director Ben Cox added: “Snowdonia has seen a sharp reduction in the number of people working the land over the last 50 years as international competition, rural urban migration and the harsh conditions of North Wales’ countryside have made farming less attractive for new generations.
“Our film champions the work of the National Trust and Wales YFC.
“Each year, their Llyndy Isaf Scholarship gives a young farmer the opportunity to manage the Llyndy Isaf Estate in the heart of Snowdonia, encouraging the tranference of knowledge, the protection of the local environment and the conservation of an integral part of Welsh heritage.”
