Bucket List - Doonies Farm

Sorry guys, I have been super busy the last few weeks.. change of job, family holiday, cub scout camp and the mountain of washing that comes with it all, so sorry I haven't blogged in a while.. 

Yesterday the weather in Aberdeen was surprisingly nice.. it's been horrible fog and rain for the past couple weeks. So a friend, his godson and I took the chance to tick something off my bucket list... Doonies Farm!! Doonies is one of my favourite places, it is a rare breed farm that is open to the public and I used to come as a child. They have horses, pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys, geese, goats and sheep in all sorts of breeds. You can buy a bucket of cut up vegetables for 50p and feed the animals as you go around, which is perfect for little kids. They also have a cute play park in the middle complete with mini tractors for the kids to ride on. Doonies was nearly shut down because of lack of funding and increased rent but thankfully it has managed to scrap by, so it is lovely to be able to support it. Doonie's have even made a new little picnic area so you can really spend the whole day if you wanted.

It costs £4 for adults, £2.50 for children's and under 2's go free but you can get a family ticket for £10 which is for 2 adults and 3 children and even school trips get a discounted rate of £3 for adults and £2 for children. They even sell duck, goose and chicken eggs and beef steaks (but you have to be fast they sell out fast!)

Who doesn't love little lambs and calfs?!

Love M xx
