See what hap­pens down on the farm

The Arran Banner - - News -

Ever wanted to see what re­ally goes on be­hind the gates of a real work­ing farm? Well now is your chance as Belle­vue Farm near Black­wa­ter­foot will be giv­ing the pub­lic an in­sight into farm life next week­end.

The move is part of a na­tion­wide ini­tia­tive known as Open Farm Sun­day which is man­aged by Link­ing En­vi­ron­ment And Farm­ing (LEAF).

On Sun­day June 10, Don­ald and Ailsa Cur­rie and their two sons, Don­ald and An­drew, will wel­come vis­i­tors from 10am to noon and 2pm to 4pm at Belle­vue Farm.

It is the first Open Farm Sun­day event to be held on Ar­ran and will pro­vide vis­i­tors with an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover first hand what it means to be a farmer and what is in­volved in pro­duc­ing food and manag­ing the coun­try­side.

Vis­i­tors will be able to see ewes and lambs, cows and calves, pigs, hens and chick­ens and there will be a short trac­tor and trailer ride through the fields.

There will also be a small vin­tage trac­tor dis­play and a show of all the farm trac­tors and ma­chin­ery.

Any­one re­quir­ing fur­ther in­for­ma­tion should con­tact the farm by email at belleve­u­farm­cot­tages@ bt­in­ter­net.com, via text on 07740 986803 or via the Face­book page.
