History

Home Farm was established, as the name implies, as the home farm to the Penrhyn Estate soon after Edward Gordon Douglas-Pennant succeeded to the estate in 1840. Douglas-Pennant was a noted agricultural improver and first gave notice to his tenants of his intention to improve the estate through his agent, James Wyatt's address "To the Farming Tenantry of the Penrhyn Estate", printed in 1843. At Home Farm agent and owner combined to create a new farm based on the latest principles of agricultural efficiency.
