Adam Henson visits Cwmchwefru Farm and talks to Lesley Wickham about her passion for coloured sheep, her Dexter cows and the numerous varieties of goats to be found on her 100 acre farm in the Cambrian Mountains. Originally a knitwear designer and spinner Lesley has developed her interest in naturally coloured fleeces, ethical farming methods and animal husbandry in general into a successful business which supplies high quality wool and woollen goods. She has been successfully cross breeding her sheep for 20 years and despite working almost single handedly still occasionally finds time to spin and knit in her own studio on the farm, a welcome and relaxing refuge from the mountain weather and the rounds of feeding and muck clearing.
