About Us

A farm based around heritage

Carn Edward mountain majestically unites the holdings of Llannerch, Penrhiw and Penlan Uchaf Gardens & Tea Room. The venture is managed and farmed by brothers Robert and Richard, who have been taught and continue to receive guidance from parents Dilwyn and Suzanne Vaughan.

Their grandparents lived and worked on Llannerch Farm and it is now a vibrant livestock hill farm. Dilwyn then transformed the neighbouring, and previously neglected Penlan Uchaf, into the stunning location it is today. Penrhiw Farm was added to the project a year after Robert and Richard completed college and with 500 years of family history behind them, Carn Edward farms was born.

Farming Carn Edward Today

The farm runs as a typical livestock hill farm, with 750 pedigree Lleyn breeding ewes and 200 pedigree Longhorn cattle. All animals are pasture grazed and when winter arrives are housed and fed on grass silage round bales made in early summer. We switched to longhorn cattle in 2001 due to the breed being ideally suited to the extreme weather conditions that our Pembrokeshire farm often faces throughout the year.

As well as providing the views and produce at our Garden and Tea Rooms, we visit local farmers markets in the area, food festivals and continue to grow our meat sales through online means. For Welsh meat online, we are a quality supplier.

Gardens & Tea Room

In the early 1908s, Dilwyn began to create what is known today as Penlan Uchaf gardens. Through his love of gardening that was learnt from his mother, the previously untended piece of land would blossom. Robert and Richard saw the love and passion that was given to the project by their father and both attended college, Robert at Gelli Aur and the Welsh Agricultural College in Aberystwyth, and Richard attending the Royal Horticultural Society college in Pershore.

The Gardens and Tea Rooms today offer a stunning backdrop for visitors to come and relax with some wonderful local food and drink.
