This Organic Farm Run By The Community For The Community Is An Inspiration For The Future Of Farming

Growing with the community, for the community.

Caerhys is a community farm in North Pembrokeshire, Wales. Unlike most modern farms, COCA members work together in a spirit of sustainability, trust and friendship to produce organic vegetables that are distributed to the local community.
