Aberdeenshire Farming Museum

Aberdeenshire Farming Museum tells the story of the North East’s farming past from its unique semi-circular Aden Estate home farm. The award winning museum describes the farming story with three themes, The Aden Estate Story, The Horseman’s House and Weel Vrocht Grun.

The Aden Estate Story exhibitions tell the history of the land, the people and the buildings in which the exhibition is held. The Horseman’s House takes a look at what home and family life was like for Aden Home Farm’s horseman in the 1920s.

The museums main exhibition is “Weel Vrocht Grun”, which means well worked ground. It tells the story of how farming developed in North East Scotland from the late eighteenth century to the mid twentieth century. The exhibition is divided into different displays, from ploughing & sowing to grain processing.
