Scotland’s First Fright Farm Set to Frighten the Masses

Responding to an increase in demand for all things ghoulish and ghostly, a Scottish farm is following in the footsteps of an all-American craze by staging a three day fright farm experience over Hallowe’en weekend later this month.

Muddy Boots Farm, in Balmalcolm in Fife, started their scary Hallowe’en experience a couple of years ago, taking an unusual approach to their, normally pleasant, customer service by creating a series of attractions that cause fright, fear and panic among their visitors.

Panic WebNormally a small event run for local customers, the demand for their farm based ghostly goings on has risen steadily and this year the family run farm expect hundreds of visitors from all over Scotland to make the journey to Fife to feel the fear.

The two sisters behind the business, Moira and Treina Samson, explained why:

“So much of Hallowe’en is either aimed at the very young children, such as guising, or the much older “children” such as Hallowe’en Fancy Dress parties. There’s not much going on for the teenagers and young adults who like to have just as much ghostly fun as the next person! We’d both heard of the fright farm experiences in the USA and loved the idea and thought it would work really well in Scotland.”

“The fright farm experience is perfect for that age group – it plays with their imaginations and, like it or not, young people are pre-disposed to be fascinated with all things haunted and frightening.”

Refusing to be drawn on whether the farm really was haunted, they commented:

“The farm has been in our family for years…… perhaps it might be.”

With five attractions to make their way round, visitors will have the opportunity to navigate an outdoor Panic Line, test their senses in the Pitch Black experience, face the scary clowns, brave a haunted walk in the wild and even visit the hospital from hell.

Hallowe’en is increasingly big business for Britain. Since 2001 there has been a 23 fold increase in spend on Hallowe’en in the UK, rising from just £12 million to £280 million in 2010. The occasion now sits firmly behind Christmas and Easter as the UK’s third most popular festival, outselling the more romantic Valentine’s Day and the hugely popular Mother’s Day.

Muddy Boots is the first farm in Scotland to be offering the genuine fright farm experience. For more information and to buy tickets visit www.scotlandsfrightfarm.com

The Great Family Bake Off

Fresh home baking at Muddy Boots Farm Shop, FifeA mother and daughter baking duo from Fife are down to the final for this year’s Scottish Homebaking Awards which take place later this month.

Elise Samson and her daughter, Treina Samson both share a passion for homebaking which has been passed on through the generations of the farming family, alongside some very secret recipes which are now prepared daily for visitors to the Muddy Boots Farm Café in Balmalcolm.

They are delighted that Muddy Boots’ homebaking has made the final slice to go head to head with some of Scotland’s finest master bakers.

Commenting on the shortlisting, Treina Samson said:

“We are very excited – these awards are the only ones of their kind in Scotland and truly coveted by those who are passionate about baking. Muddy Boots has achieved award status before, after being independently assessed, but has never been selected as a finalist for the annual awards ceremony. I’m really hoping that we can bring home the trophy. Being shortlisted as a finalist is fantastic – to win would really be the icing on the cake!”

The duo will have to wait until 21st September before the winners will be revealed at a start-studded event to be held at the magnificent Mar Hall near Glasgow.

Muddy Boots Expands with New Play Area

ExpandsMuddy Boots Farm in Balmalcolm, Fife, unveiled its latest expansion last night with over 100 invited guests joining the Samson family to be the very first to try out the new Muddy’s Adventure Play Area, now situated behind the indoor soft play building.

The official opening, which was timed to take place on Independents Day, is another feather in the cap of the independent, privately owned farm shop, café and play area that started as a roadside raspberry seller in a tent just a few short years ago, and which now sees thousands of families pass through its doors every year.

Speaking at the unveiling, Treina Samson, co-owner of Muddy Boots said:

“Independents Day is a celebration of independent businesses in the UK, and we are really delighted to be marking that with the opening up Muddy Boots’ new expanded play area to meet growing demand in what is already a very popular part of our business.

“The new play area is over three times the size and will give many more children the opportunity to play in the outdoors, breathe in some of that incredible fresh Fife air and, most importantly, get a little bit muddy!”

In a nod to the “other” Independence Day celebrations taking place at the other side of the Atlantic, guests enjoyed a Scottish themed barbecue, served with the finest Puddledub burgers but it wasn’t long before everyone was jumping for joy on the giant jumping pillow, one of two at the site, with the younger visitors giving the new play area a big thumbs up.

Muddy Boots is open every day to visitors from 9am.

Pig Racing new to Muddy Boots

We have just had our first ever day of pig racing today. The only Pig Racing farm park in Scotland! We have 6 very cute little Saddleback x pink pig weaners, who have been given very apt racing names, Ham-ilton, Sow-wester, Spamala Anderson, Chop-chop, Streaky and Usain Boar!

The first race was very comical with the pigs running about in all directions, the eventual winner was Sow-wester who just pipped Ham-ilton to the win. For the second race the pigs were getting the hang of racing and were standing waiting at the gate for the off, it was still a wiggly race but at a much faster pace and Ham-iton jumped past Chop-chop at the finish line to take the win.

Everyone loved watching the racing which is on everyday of the holidays at 11:30 and 3:30 and every weekend until November. It’s a great event and really entertaining.
