Welcome to Murton Farm, Tearoom and Nature Reserve

Murton Farm, Tea Room and Nature Reserve is a popular visitor attraction in beautiful Angus located just outside Forfar.

Whether you are looking to let the kids burn off some energy on the farm, catch up with friends over a lunch or coffee in the tearoom or stroll on our beautiful nature reserve, we have something for everyone here at Murton. Booking is not required in advance but tickets for our farm can be purchased here on our website through the Book Now button. Take a look at our Events and What’s On section for all the event availability.

Supporting us, so we can support the whole community

We have an abundance of safe, open space and fresh air for all to enjoy but we do still need your support to maintain our wonderful site. We are asking you to support us by donating what you can, when you visit. Our donation boxes can be found across our site and at our events. All donations made are greatly appreciated and every penny goes towards, running our educational programmes, the continued care of animals and year-round maintenance of our entire site.

Additional ways in which you can support us:

  • You can pledge a single donation here.
  • Enjoying something delicious from our tearoom (yes, all profits from our tearoom go towards our site upkeep).
  • Booking on to one of our events.
  • Sponsoring or adopting one of our animals, buying a gift voucher for our tearoom or even a farm pass for when the farm entry fees are reinstated.
  • Become a “Friend of Murton”, which comes with its own tearoom treats.
  • Buying wooden goods, many of which are made by our students. Or why not purchase a flat pack and take it home for a rainy day task with the kids.
  • Did you know we have a wish list? If you think you could support us but would like your money to go to something specific, look at our wish list, we love a surprise! (We use Amazon to create our wish list but if you would like to purchase something similar elsewhere, we really don’t mind.)

Events & Tipi Hire – We offer a wide selection of events and hire opportunities. 

We offer outdoor and indoor facilities. We have a 24ft Tipi and firepit area on our nature reserve and our Rural Skills Cabin next to the tearoom. These can be hired for birthdays, gatherings, schools/groups or for meetings. Our hire options are flexible and we can provide food/drinks, staff led activities.

Volunteering and Placements
Our volunteer programee is for anyone aged 14 and over. We have many young volunteers who help at weekends and in the holidays when they can. We also have adult volunteers who help with any area of expertise or interest they have around Murton.

Please note that due to the fact that we have animals and wildlife on site, no dogs are permitted on Murton Trust grounds at any time, except for assistance dogs. Thank you for your understanding.
