Teleri Fielden has recently re-joined the FUW as a member of the Policy team in Head Office. She was initially with the FUW as a maternity cover Marketing and Membership Manager during 2017.
Teleri is a new-entrant beef and sheep tenant farmer in Snowdonia, having just taken on a 100-acre ten-year FBT in Nantmor, near Beddgelert.

Teleri will be focusing on eU exit, Future Agricultural Policy, red Meat, Glastir and Parliamentary liaison among other topics.
Teleri commented: “i’m honoured to be joining FUW as a Policy Officer, and am glad to be back with such a hard-working dedicated team. i feel it is vitally important that Wales’ farmers
have a voice, particularly during this time of immense change post Brexit and with the new Agriculture Bill in place.
“important decisions are being made about the direction of our countryside which will affect our industry and communities for years to come, and we as farmers need to be able to shape that discussion.”
Teleri also sits on the executive committee in FUW Caernarfon, is a steering group member of NFFN Wales (Nature Friendly Farming Network), and sits on the Welsh Governments Young People in Agriculture Forum.
She grew up in Wrexham, and then moved to Meifod in Montgomeryshire (where her Taid Glyn Davies farmed The Gaer in Trefnanney) before studying in Aberystwyth University. Teleri lives in Hafod y llyn isaf with her fiancé Ned Feesey from Maentwrog, and their two sheepdogs roy and ralff, (pictured right).
