While at the Farming Museum why not visit our other venue in the country park, Hareshowe Farm.

Hareshowe Farm is a typical small Buchan farm steading built in the 1890s. Once located some miles from Aden Country Park and owned by the Barron family from 1935 until the late 1980s, it was dismantled building by building, stone-by-stone and rebuilt on its present site within Aden Country Park during the winter of 1990-91. Returned to its mid-1950s character, the building, both house and steading, reflect this with their contents.

The whole farmhouse and steading buildings are open to the public. The farm is a short pleasant walk from Aden Farming Museum.
