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 😁👌
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 😀
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

We understand that this time of year really is tight for everyone, but we are still appealing for your help! If you can spare even just £1, we now have over 5500 followers on the page – if even half could donate £1, or even just 50p, it would go a long way towards ensuring the survival of Lamont Farm. We receive minimal grants from other bodies, so really do rely on donations to continue to meet all running costs and continue to care for the wide variety of animals here on the Farm.
The cost of everything is increasing, food/bedding/electricity/gas amongst some of the major costs, and we also have large vet bills that need to be paid. Can you help? Please donate what you can, every little really does help!
You can donate by paypal (email@example.com), bank transfer (please PM us to be sent details), cash if you pop into the Farm or cheque (made payable to Lamont Farm Project). Or does your workplace fundraise for a nominated charity? Why not see if they could do a fundraiser for Lamont Farm!
You can also pay money directly towards our vet bill, please PM us if you would like details on how to do this.
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. 🙂
