Hill farmer Gareth Wyn Jones is a bit of a celebrity in wales with many tv shows.
here he explores the crisis facing the Welsh dairy industry. He discovers that farmers are selling their milk for less than it costs them to produce it.
they are getting 16p a ltr but it costs 26p to produce . In some cases WATER is worth more.

I think many who play this game dont realize how hard a life farming can be.
I grew up on a farm but my family had to sell up when i was 15 after 315 years of the farm being in the family.
Farming is hard and hill farming is harder still. Gareth is a top block who shows us the reality.
