Things To Do and See
Please note that Easter Anguston Farm re-opens on Sunday, 11th March at weekends until Easter including the enchanted fairy wood (weather permitting). We will be open 7 days a week, 10am - 4pm (gates locked at 4.45pm) from the 30th of March 2018 onwards.
Café - open on weekends and school holidays (weather permitting) during winter, 10am - 4pm
Our café greatly helps trainees develop their social and vocational skills. We encourage the public to come along and enjoy a warm welcome, the great atmosphere, superb food and excellent coffee, and there is always the play park and ice cream freezer to keep the younger members of the family occupied, too.
We kindly ask visitors for their support by not bringing their own food and drink to the farm. For sunny days we can offer a picnic style lunch which can be purchased from the cafe, customers are welcome to borrow one of our picnic rugs to enjoy your food outside. This will allow us to continue to maintain a free admission policy for our wonderful facility.
We thank you for your co-operation.
Enchanted Fairy Wood
Carefully working with the environment and minimising any damage to the trees, the previously underutilised Walnut Wood became a stunning visitor attraction. Come and see the fairy café, fairy bank, art gallery, fairy garden centre and much more. This is a great attraction for everyone.
Trainees are supported to staff, stock and run the farm shop. The public can purchase a range of produce and gifts. This offers excellent confidence building and social opportunities for the trainees and some of the goods available for sale in the shop are used in the café, too.
Pick Your Own Fruit
We are very proud to be a pick your own fruit farm, which is hugely popular every year. We offer strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and redcurrants. Picking fruit is great fun for the whole family – come along and make a day of it!
We grow a wide range of plants from seed, which forms an important part of the training programme. The trainees tend these plants daily to ensure they reach your garden in peak condition. Come along and congratulate them on all their hard work.
Children’s Play Area
Our play area has recently been improved and expanded and we are always placing fun new interactive activates around the site. Make a game of it: how many can your little ones find?
It could be an alpaca, miniature donkey, rabbit, chicken, pig, duck, Shetland pony, sheep, ferret or one of the aviary birds…who will be your favourite? You never know who you might meet at Easter Anguston. Be sure to come and visit them, these guys can’t wait to see you.

Nature Trails and Woodland Walks
Who wouldn’t enjoy a scenic walk in the picturesque Royal Deeside? We have miles of well kept walking paths around our site and you can often see wildlife in the fields or woodland. If you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of one of the local badgers or a family of deer. Our trainees help to make the interactive activities that are dotted along our walks: how many will you find?
