You will get very close to our Highland cows but we do not encourage our visitors to reach out and touch them in order to keep everyone safe. Please remember these are farm animals, not pets.
Yes, one of your guides can take a picture of you with a Highland cow in the background of the shot – if you follow our Instagram feed you’ll see we’re pretty well practiced at taking photos of Highland cows!
Yes, and at certain times of year you might even see a new-born Highland calf. Our Highland cows calve in March and April, so if you visit us in spring you’ll usually see some very cute little ones.
Our tours are suitable for all ages, and we will tailor our chat to the ages of our guests. There is no charge for guests aged two years and under. The youngest person we’ve had on tour so far was 15 weeks old, and we’ve also had a lady who was 90 years young on tour - she had a great time!
Yes, get in touch and if it’s possible to accommodate you we will. You can reach us on 01581 600223.
The lambs will be out playing in the fields from April onwards, so mid-April to mid-May is a perfect time to visit to see lambs.
Yes, many of them have gaelic names. Your guide will tell you all about how they get their names and what they mean.
A selection of freshly made sandwiches and freshly baked oven scones with clotted cream and locally produced jams. There will also be a choice of home baking including farmhouse favourites, such as shortbread, lemon drizzle cake, millionaire shortbread, mint slice, rocky road, or empire biscuits. Freshly brewed coffee and tea or juice is also available.
Please make us aware of any food allergies or intolerances when you fill in the booking form as you go through the online checkout. We will then prepare freshly made treats to suit your dietary requirements. Gluten free and vegetarian options are of course available.
There is a small booking fee which is charged when you book through our online booking system.
If you or any member of the party wish to cancel a confirmed booking, we require the person who made the booking to call us on 01581 600223 not less than 48 hours prior to the start of the farm tour experience.
Should you wish to forego your booked farm experience due to dangerous road conditions caused by the weather, we will endeavour to provide you with an alternative date within six months. If this is not possible, we shall provide you with a full refund. Refunds will be processed within ten working days. Reimbursement will be made in the same format as payment was taken or another agreed method if this is not suitable.
Should you wish to cancel your farm experience less than 48 hours prior to the booking, if you do not show for the booking or if you do not attend the meeting point prior to the start time, then Kitchen Coos & Ewes Ltd cannot issue a refund.
Guide dogs are welcome in all cases except for our walking tour where the group walk towards untethered grazing cattle. Family pets are not allowed to travel in our safari trailers as they may alarm our Highland cattle when we get close to them.
Our trailer based tours are suitable for everyone. There are three wheelchair anchor points inside our farm tour trailer which can be accessed by a purpose-built ramp at the farm.
Your farm experience just gets better on a stormy day! Our Highland cows like the heat but they actually love stormy days even more! The farm tour trailer is designed for all weathers and so are our Highland cows and our ewes. Put on an extra layer and we’ll keep you dry. If the roads are too dangerous due to snow and ice, a full refund or a rescheduled date will be offered.
