Gigrin Farm, famous for its Red Kite Feeding, attracts visitors from around the world. Located half a mile from Rhayader, hundreds of Red Kites feed here every day. It’s a breath-taking spectacle and is the best place in the UK to see and photograph 100s' of wild Red Kites (including rare Leucistic Red Kites).

Located half a mile from Rhayader town centre, in the beautiful countryside of Mid-Wales, overlooking both the Wye and Elan valleys. The Red Kites are fed once daily at 2pm (end October to end March) and 3pm (end March to end October). The number of Kites being fed varies dependent upon the time of year from around 300 in the summer to 500 in the colder months. Rare leucistic (white) Red Kites frequently visit the farm.
