Hundreds turned up at The James Hutton Institute in Invergowrie for this year’s LEAF Open Farm Sunday.  They were able to meet TV scientist Heather ‘The Weather’ Reid who was a special guest and who also performed to packed houses as she described life as a top TV weather forecaster. 

Staff from Dundee and Aberdeen laid on tractor rides, science games and other attractions for children.  Visitors also had the chance to try their hand on our giant farm machinery including tractors, stone separators and combine harvesters.

LEAF - Linking Farming And Environment - promotes sustainable farming methods of the sort pioneered at The James Hutton Institute in Invergowrie and Aberdeen. Farms across the UK took part in yesterday’s event.
