Farming Chaplain

Sybil Ruscoe meets the Rev Canon Eileen Davies, a farmer and vicar in west Wales. With two flocks to tend, Eileen talks about how her farming knowledge helps in her rural parishes.

Sybil Ruscoe meets the Rev Canon Eileen Davies. She's a dairy and sheep farmer in West Wales, as well as a rural vicar covering four parishes. Eileen says her farming background helps her to understand the issues around farming in the modern age - from isolation and mental health issues to economic worries and bovine TB.
Eileen has also set up a charity - Tir Dewi - with the Bishop of St David's. It aims to offer support and a listening ear for those in farming and those associated with the agricultural industry.
We catch up with Eileen at Carmarthen Livestock Mart where she is also on hand to offer rural ministry.
