RACQUETY FARM (84019), joined 17th March 2016

Set in the stunning area of the Brecon Beacons, Racquety Farm is a sixty-four acre, Soil Association certified farm overlooking the beautiful town of Hay-on-Wye. As well as having a river bank that is an SSSI, they have orchards, arable pasture and woodlands. They produce an abundance of soft fruit, apples and walnuts, and specialise in raspberries which are supplied to local shops and restaurants.

Racquety Farm offers glamping, camping, B&B and self-catering. If that isn’t enough, you can also hire canoes for a fun paddle down the river Wye. Bushcraft courses are also available. They have let out one of their fields to a community group, Hayfield community garden, which gives local people the opportunity to grow vegetables for their own use. Rosalind, the force behind this amazing place, says she has hosted a couple of lovely WWOOFers already, and is booked up for the whole season!
