May 26 2018

What a beautiful time of year to be outside, especially on a farm while the fluffy lambs are skipping and everything looks so green and alive.  I've been hearing rumours about a farm shop being developed at North Grange Farm, close to David Lloyd and Dobbies in Monifieth, and at last it has opened its doors.
