Visitors flock to open day

‘We were delighted with the turnout of visitors’

Bellevue Farm really reaped the rewards when more than 120 people recently turned up to see what really happens down on the farm.

In a first for Arran, the open day was part of a nationwide initiative known as Open Farm Sunday which is managed by Linking Environment and Farms (LEAF).


Farmers Ailsa and Donald Currie, along with sons Donald and Andrew, welcomed the visitors and, after providing them with a map, allowed them free rein to explore all aspects of the farm along a carefully laid out route, taking in all of the sights, smells and sounds.

Providing visitors with an insight into how a working farm produces food and how the land is managed, visiting families were in-terested to see the agricultural machinery, the vintage tractor display and especially the ewes, lambs, cows, piglets and baby chicks.
