Farm & Solar Park

Killan Fach Farm and Solar Park

This site has been in use by ourselves for many years for the production of Christmas Trees and for supporting our Animal Park.

In 2017 the Solar Park was constructed generating 1MW of power. The Solar Scheme is operated as a community benefit society Gower Regeneration Limited www.regengower.co.uk.

We have also been working with organic food producers to grow a variety of crops at the farm. We plan to stock farm products in the Mill shop later on this year. Current producers include Summit Good CIC and Good For You Ferments, Swansea. We are also increasing production of our potted Christmas Trees and logs for sale.

The farm is currently home to all the animals from the Heritage Centre cared for by Liam (pictured left) whilst we are closed due to the pandemic. We are also working with Gwyr Gin to convert an existing barn into a distillery running on solar power. We have asked Swansea City Council to support the setting up of new agri-businesses using renewable energy at the farm and the construction of new barns for this purpose – watch this space to see if your council will support these initiatives to create jobs and prosperity for Swansea. Our members will be able to visit the farm at pre booked times to see the developments and take part in workshops about growing food, animal management, outdoor skills such as cutting timber, making fences etc. There will be electric vehicle hooks up and a chance to see the solar park working. The solar scheme is being run as a Community Benefit society which means that any future profits can be used to support community schemes such as growing your own food.
