Prints of Wales to support farmers; FARM & COUNTRY.

YOURS for pounds 2,450: signed water colour prints of Mid Wales, painted by Prince Charles, have gone on sale to raise money for an upland farm scheme.

Profit from sales will fund further development of the Cambrian Mountains Initiative (CMI), of which the prince is president.

The scheme is designed to help sustain traditional upland farms, communities and the environment in Mid Wales.

The lithographs are taken from a painting of Cwm Berwyn, near Tregaron, which is already being used as part of the initiative's branding.

Farmers and food producers who sign up to the CMI can use the brand, which in future may also be extended to incorporate farm tourism and other rural activities. Already, CMI lamb producers are supplying the Co-operative group's premium range.

The framed and boxed lithographs are limited to 100 prints. Each is individually numbered, signed by the Prince and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

They're available for pounds 2,450 each at www.highgroveshop.com.
