Welcome to the Red Kite Feeding Centre – Gigrin Farm!
Lockdown – a 2 week national lockdown has been announced by the Welsh Government today (19th October) effective from 6pm on 23rd October. The farm will therefore be closed from Saturday 24th October to Sunday 8th November inclusive. Customers who have purchased tickets for dates in this period may apply for a refund by emailing email@example.com or by using the ‘contact event organiser’ on the TryBooking site.
As per Government requirements we cannot accept group bookings of 6 persons or more, aged 11 and above, in the Hides. The outdoor kite viewing field is available for larger groups. Masks are mandatory in Wales and must be worn in all indoor areas of the farm, including in the hides (the Gateway, Tower and Big Tower are exempt as these are primarily outdoor with shelter above).

We are a 160 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 breath-taking 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, all of which are just a few metres away from where the Red Kites are fed.
There is a coffee shop, gift shop, picnic site, and farm trail on site.
Everyone is welcome. We cater for families, specialist photographers, film-makers, schools trips and coaches.
