Rachel Thomas

Horticulture Co-ordinator

Rachel joined the Tyfu Cymru Team in January 2022.

Rachel lives locally to our office in Builth Wells - she lives and works part time on a hill farm that has been in her family for over 100 years.

She has worked within the agricultural and horticultural industries for the last 6 years, starting at an Agricultural Merchants in Rhayader then moving onto a Welsh Lavender farm. In this time, she has developed her passion for both industries, while gaining many useful skills that she now uses on a daily basis in her role as Horticulture Coordinator.

Shortly after beginning her first year at Harper Adams University on an Animal Health and Welfare Course, Rachel decided that university wasn’t suited to her, so she was delighted to have the opportunity to work for Lantra, in the Tyfu Cymru team.
