Glasfryn Educates the Farmers
- 14 January 2016
Glasfryn Fencing, based in Pwllheli, recently became the main focus of attention in a national farming TV programme in Wales about timber fencing around the farm.

Production company Telesgop approached Glasfryn Fencing to help explain exactly what goes into producing high performance fencing for farmers to be featured in the weekly Ffermio farming programme broadcasted on S4C.

Arwel Roberts of Glasfryn explained how and why they were chosen. ‘Looking to highlight the versatility and value of timber fencing around the farm, Telesgop initially thought we were fencing contractors and wanted to film fencing being installed.  However they became even more interested in how we harvest and produce our high performance farm fencing products that we supply to this market.’

‘We showed them our own carefully managed forestry resources and exactly what is involved in harvesting the timbers, machining them and carefully air drying them down to a suitable moisture content before we then preservative treat with the latest TANALITH preservative in our own treatment facilities. The full process was filmed and featured extensively within the programme.’

‘It provided a different and very interesting day for us. Equally I think it provided a real education to the farming audience in what goes into producing quality fencing timbers and what performance they can expect.’
