Wheelie good fun down on the farm

The Galloway News - - FARMING -

More than 600 peo­ple took the chance to look around Erne­spie Farm on Sun­day.

The farm on the out­skirts of Cas­tle Douglas was opened up by the McMiken fam­ily as part of Open Farm Sun­day.

There were a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties for peo­ple to en­joy in the glo­ri­ous sun­shine in­clud­ing a trac­tor pull, bar­be­cue, a quiz and the chance to look around the farm at the an­i­mals.

There was also a com­pe­ti­tion to guess how many bal­loons were in a trac­tor.

The day was free but do­na­tions of around £500 were re­ceived which will go to Alzheimer Scot­land and the Life ChangesTrust.
