Groups at Cwmoernant Farm

As well as hosting events and workshops,  the farm is used by a number of groups on a regular basis:

The Carmarthenshire Beekeepers have been coming to the farm for several years now, meeting here at the farm for regular gatherings throughout the spring and summer and into autumn showing the process of keeping bees throughout the year. Folk of all ages and experience come together to share ideas and skills to enable each other to care for their own bees as well as the bees in the bee garden at the farm. There is always something to learn and keep everyone Busy as well as added skills and demonstrations such as candle making, skep making as well as extracting honey if the bees have had a good year;with a friendly break time with tea and cake. They have even been known to host their quiz nights and honey show here some years, with an occasional celebratory Twmpath at the end of the season !

The Merlin Explorer Scouts have been meeting at the farm regularly for several years now, enabling young adults to experience a variety of things that perhaps their every day life does not offer, and through these activities they can achieve all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and The Queen Scout Award. With a record number of people achieving these in 2015 there has been lots to celebrate. With our own interest in Scouting beginning around the year 2000 we have enjoyed many weekend camps and camp fire cooking over the years..with our dog not missing one meeting they always remember to count him in on the Hot Dogs. The younger Scout members have a meeting hall in town but often come to share the outdoors and big buildings here, so the farm has shared many happy times before they come here as an Explorer Scout.
