Farm tours

Come and join one of our farm tours, see what we do here at Dalmore, meet the animals and learn a bit more about small-scale farming. It’s a fun and interesting day out for families as well as those who may be interested in growing food or raising farm animals, or anyone who just wants to see what’s happening on the farm.Our tours last around 1½ hours and you’ll have the opportunity to meet our chickens, pigs, sheep and cattle (and our ponies), visit the vegetable and fruit gardens, see our bees and the orchard and maybe pick some fruit or vegetables (depending on the season). You’ll get to see Miranda, our old tractor, and maybe see her in action!

Depending on the time of year, we might have young lambs to feed, we might have young calves and be milking and making cheese, collecting honey from the bees, or we might be harvesting apples and making apple juice. There’s always something interesting happening on the farm!

What you need to know

  • Our land is quite flat, so it’s suitable for buggies.
  • The route is uneven in places, and there might be dung underfoot in places, so stout outdoor footwear is required.
  • You will be required to dip your shoes and boots in disinfectant, so no open-toed sandals!
  • The farm walks last about 1½ hours.
  • No dogs are allowed on the farm walks.
  • Walks have a capacity of 8 adults with a maximum of 2 children per adult. We can accommodate larger groups, please contact us for details of bespoke tours.

And at the end of the tour, you can relax with a drink and some home-baking in our converted steading.

Other farm visits

We’re keen to help folk connect with farming and learn where their food comes from. We’ve been volunteers with the Royal Highland Education Trust since 2011 and regularly host visits from schools. We also take part in “Open Farm Sunday” and host occasional visits from community groups.
