  • re-painted our fences, sheds and play park
  • Improved our ‘welly garden’ so our naughty ducks don’t knock down any of our planted wellies
  • Installed a new kiosk at the front of the farm entrance
  • Added new features to our Sensory garden
  • Re-redesigned our chicken coups
  • Ordered new farm signs
  • Are in the process of setting up a delivery service and card payment method for our beef and pork
  • Are updating our social media accounts more regularly
  • Are in the process of developing an idea of an exhibition at the farm, detailing the history of Doonies
  • Adding new information signs around the farm about the rare breed animals we keep
  • Adding new interesting and interactive detailed around the farm for children (and adults) to enjoy

Hello all!

It has been quite a challenging winter at Doonies with all this rain and wind!

We are all looking forward to lambing starting at the end of February and cannot wait until you are get to see and meet the new arrivals! Like us on facebook to see the most upto-date posts on the wee lambs.

We also received some very good news- farmer Graham won a lot of prizes at the annual Longhorn breeders competition, which you can see in the picture.

Please also take note at our new opening times for the farm as they have changed but our prices have remained the same :)

Looking forward to re-opening!
