Harmony Farm // Hyphen Magazine


Harmony Farm, near Pontypool, photographed for Hyphen Magazine.

I spent an inspiring and interesting afternoon with Muhsen and his lovely family. Muhsen and his family left London in 2015 to set up Harmony Farm near Pontypool, south Wales, despite having no farming experience. The 56 acre site is now largely self sufficient, and earns most of its income from tourism ; activities include air-rifle shooting, mountain cruise in a jeep (I highly recommend!) and axe throwing. Muhsen’s wife , Elif, also runs bread making courses, while their 11 year old son, Abdul Malik, does a show and tell of his collection of reptiles.
