Welcome to the Red Kite Feeding Centre – Gigrin Farm!

We are a 200 acre family-run working farm, now famous for our Red Kite Feeding Centre. Hundreds of Red Kites feed here every day. It is a truly breathtaking spectacle which we hope you will come along and witness for yourself.

The Red Kite Centre is located in the most beautiful countryside, in the heart of Mid Wales, overlooking both the Wye and Elan Valleys, and just half a mile from the market town of Rhayader.

We have general hides for you to watch from, as well as specialist Photographic Hides, both of which are just a few metres away from where the Red Kites are fed. There is a coffee shop & gift shop, a picnic site., and farm trail.

Everyone is welcome. We cater for families, specialist photographers, film-makers, schools trips and coaches.
