Popular north-east farm attraction to reopen this month

A farm that offers training for adults with learning disabilities and other additional support needs is reopening later this month.

Charity VSA will welcome visitors back to Easter Anguston Farm, near Peterculter, from June 25.

The farm normally welcomes thousands of visitors to see its animals and interactive play zones each year, but has been shut since the pandemic started.

An appeal was launched last year to raise the funds that would allow the farm to reopen.

Dr Kenneth Simpson, chief executive of VSA, said: "We are delighted to be in the position to welcome back families to Easter Anguston Farm.

"We will be opening to the general public from June 25, and initially, we will be open on weekends only, with the aim of us working towards returning to our regular operating hours in late fall.

"We know how much the farm means to thousands of families who visit us each year. We would not be able to reopen had it not been for the incredible support we have received.

"Thank you to everyone who has played their part and donated. To date, Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on us, and we would continue to ask for people to support us when they can."

Access to the farm is only available by pre-booking a ticket on the charity's website.
