Is Hydroponic Farming a farming method that has potential in Gwynedd?
The feasibility study aimed to:
- Prepare a business model for a Gwynedd Hydroponics scheme
- Outline the technical requirements for the model
- Outline the cost requirements to establish the model.
The project will involve researching the possibility of establishing a hydroponics centre of excellence at Glynllifon Farm (Part of the Coleg Llandrillo Menai Group) that will inform and educate the farming community about the latest non-soil based growing techniques. The project will also look to identify an area based production and distribution model that could involve a cluster of interdependent growers across North West Wales and beyond.
The Feasibility Study is available here.
