Day 4 Programme
Matt runs Henbant farm in north-west Wales, with his family. After a career in award winning TV production, Matt left for a simpler life in the country. Henbant is showing that you can buy a small farm on a mortgage and make it work.
Using holistic management methods (Savory, 2010) we have developed a set of holistic contexts for us as a family and for the farm.
We have time to enjoy each other, not get stressed and stay healthy
We have a abundant and productive farm with healthy soil, ecosystem and human community.
We have a stable, sufficient income
We live purposeful lives we can be proud of and we make the world a better place
We have a diversity of visitors to the farm and the farm becomes valued by them in their lives
