We aim to offer an affordable experience which will inspire both young and old, allowing our family to share their farming life with your family. This authentic farm tour experience on a real working Angus farm with your hosts-the farmers- Graeme & Louise, and our 2 and 4-legged family is a truly unique opportunity to find out what daily life is like on a Scottish farm throughout the Seasons. "Every day is a school day" people say and this is certainly true not only for our visitors but also ourselves as you never know what might happen down on the farm. Our bespoke tour takes approximately 1.5 hours and we will tailor it where possible to your individual requests so please let us know of any specific needs you have. The tour involves meeting our friendly animals including our cows, sheep, goats, alpacas & Lucy, the micropig. You may be lucky and see a new-born lamb, kid or calf take their very first staggery steps and find their Mum. Whilst walking, hear our farming families’ story and learn where your food comes from. Meet Timmy our cherished vintage tractor and get up close with Farmer Graemes' big boys toys before enjoying refreshments and farmhouse baking. Our standard farm tour is dog friendly too!
So why not visit us and learn where your food comes from whilst making memories to last a lifetime for us all. You can also extend your day by bringing a picnic in warmer weather (or order one from us in advance) as we have plenty picnic tables and take the opportunity to soak up the tranquil, rural landscape or enjoy a walk in the fresh air.
Special experiences will also be available depending on the season charged at £5 per adult, kids go free. Watch out for "feeding time fun" where you can feed the animals between 3-4pm, or add on an "alpaca hands on" experience to the standard farm tour (this excludes the alpaca walk)
Please search to check availability for the tours on your preferred date above. The farm tour runs daily at 10 for 10.30am start, subject to change, with the alpaca walks taking place at 1pm although times are flexible when arranged in advance. There are 10 adult (13yrs+) places available for each farm tour whereby a child (0-12yrs) may accompany an adult free of charge and 4 alpaca places (13 yrs+) for each alpaca walk. A child (8 yrs+) may accompany an adult on the alpaca walk but cannot have sole responsibility over an alpaca. Having used our room booking software for our tours you may find booking confusing when it mentions "a room" but please be assured this search is for the farm tours only.
Exciting news! Alpaca Walking Experience
This Spring we will be introducing an Alpaca Walking Experience on the farm too. Your unique opportunity to get up close with these gentle, inquisitive, teddy-bear like animals. One look into their big doey eyes and you will fall in love with them. As alpacas are herd animals, a minimum of 2 alpacas must be booked per tour, therefore singles can only be accommodated when joining another tour.
Please remember on any of our tours that you are coming to a real Scottish working farm. We are always at the mercy of the weather so please come prepared with warm clothing, a waterproof jacket and sturdy boots or wellingtons, and a change of clothes for young children who love puddles
Many thanks to Angus Council and the @BusinessAngus team for their support in the launch of our unique alpaca experiences.
