Progress!

We are open as normal this weekend and our normal opening hours will recommence next week (Mon-Fri 10am-3.30pm; Sat & Sun 10am-4.30pm). Please note that the play area is currently closed until the work to it is completed, hopefully reopening by the middle of next week. Other areas may be temporarily affected. Once all the work is finished, we’re sure you’ll agree with us that it will be worth the wait 😁👌

Watch this space!

Well we have some really exciting news! Through Hub West Scotland’s Helping Hands Project we are going to be getting some vital maintenance work done throughout next week, from re-concreting the yard, sorting drainage issues, repair work, improvements to the play area and lots, lots more! This will all make a massive difference to us coming into the winter 😀

This unfortunately does mean that the Farm will be closed from Monday to Friday next week (16-20/9/19). At present the plans are to be reopened by the weekend, but this may change. All updates will be posted on our Facebook page, along with some pictures to let everyone see the progress!

We are really sorry if this causes an inconvenience to anyone, but think how good the Farm will look once the work is complete!

Thanks everyone 😀

SMALL ANIMAL BOARDING – CHANGES TO CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE FOR BOARDING

Please note that we have introduced additional requirements for vaccinations for boarding rabbits with us. With immediate effect, ALL rabbits must have had their Myxomatosis and RHD1 combined vaccination AND ALSO their RHD2 vaccination before we can accept them.

The Mmyxomatosis and RHD1 combined vaccination will require to have been administered at least FOUR weeks in advance of any rabbit boarding with us. The RHD2 vaccination must be administered TWO weeks later. Since there is a two week period before the RHD2 vaccination becomes effective, this must be administered a minimum of TWO weeks prior to any rabbit boarding with us.

We have had to introduce this more stringent vaccination requirement due to the increased prevalence of RHD1 and RHD2 in Scotland. Proof of all vaccinations must be provided when dropping off your rabbit, otherwise we cannot accept it for boarding.

Can you help us with our maintenance work?

The maintenance work at the farm is never-ending so we are always looking for help from anyone who is willing to donate their time and skills.

If there are any colleges that need an on-site training ground for up and coming joiners, plumbers, electricians; then Lamont Farm is the place for you!! Examples of some of the work done previously are –

  • Two lean-to’s built.

  • The lights looked at in the main barn.

  • Showerwall put up in the ladies toilet.

  • A window put in the barn.

This could also be a good opportunity for any building/plumbing firms for on-site training for apprentices!!?? Or if you just want to donate your time, any help will be much appreciated. 🙂

Please contact the farm on 0141 812 5335 , email us at farm@lamontfarm.plus.com or send us a message via our Facebook page if you can help.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Kind hearted Gardener required

We are looking for a kind hearted Gardener to come and strim our weeds. We will pay for any for any petrol used by your strimmer and keep you supplied with cups of tea. We know from past experience that a domestic strimmer is no use for this job, so we really need a self-employed gardener or a Company to do this work for us. If you can help please call us on 0141 812 5335, email us at farm@lamontfarm.plus.com or message us on our Facebook Page. Thankyou.
