Harry came to Anglesey in August 1977 after living in Warrington, reading John Seymour's Self Sufficiency books and dreaming of THE GOOD LIFE:
"We invested in pigs, goats, and some ducks. Being quite green and on a steep learning curve we did not know that goats were escape artists and that they liked to eat all your washing on the line, or run off with it. We later progressed to calf rearing, which we did for some years and even had prize money for highest priced stock sold. We also had Pedigree Suffolk Sheep and Dorset Downs as well as Welsh sheep."
As the vineyard is taking more of their time, they now have just a small herd of Highland cattle, which seems to be an added attraction to visitors that come to their vineyard.
