The farm used to support 4,000 Welsh Mountain sheep, but the land is entered into the Glastir Entry Scheme and the Glastir Advanced Scheme, which reward farmers for removing sheep from the hills to reduce stocking.

The schemes require the landowner to care for the environmental, archeological and historical aspects of the land. Combined, the schemes generated £62,000 in 2014.

In 2012 the seller entered into a five-year option agreement subject to planning permission being granted for wind turbines. (Humberts 020 7594 4746 and Morgan & Davies 01570 423 623).
