In this programme, Trystan goes to Betws Gwerful Goch in Denbighshire to meet Trebor Edwards and his grandsons - Dion, Cai and Rhydian.
Trebor is well-known singer. He's a tenor and has recorded many albums and sung on many stage and TV shows over the years. He has also performed on cruise ships; last year he sang on a Mediterranean cruise. But Trebor's main interest is farming; he started farming Pen y Bryniau farm when he was 16 years old. By now his son Eryl farms Pen y Bryniau and Trebor and his wife live in a house called Bryn Alaw on the farm's land. Trystan chats to Trebor about singing, farming and about his family; he has ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
His son Gwyn farms Pen Craig Fawr nearby with his wife Lyn. Their sons Dion and Cai are also farmers and Trystan talks with them about their interest in farming. Dion has always wanted to be a farmer and sheep are his main interest. He goes shearing around other farms in the area and he went to New Zealand for three months shearing. Cai's main interest is cattle and he enjoys going to shows showing the calves. Rhydian is Erfyl's son; he is fourteen years old and has started learning to be a farmer already. Rhydian keeps chickens and sells the eggs and he's also bought two calves.
