All about Bay Farm Tours

Worldwide Agricultural and Sightseeing Tours

Bay Farm Tours have enjoyed over 40 years in the business of providing tours to those with an interest in agriculture and rural issues. Since our first tour to Canada in 1981, we have escorted clients to countries right around the world to observe a wide range of farming customs and agricultural practices, and to enjoy some unforgettable sightseeing opportunities together.

We have travelled to over 41 countries and have delivered over 500 tours with in excess of 15,000  travellers.

We do all the planning and logistics, providing you with everything you need for your adventure. From all flights and transport to connecting you with local farmers and planning activities. We’ve developed each tour with exactly the right mix of agriculture, sightseeing and recreation to create a one of kind travel experience.

The story of how we began:

Angus and Betty in Hong Kong en-route to

New Zealand early 90’s.


Part of a group heading out for Canadian Royal Winter Fair Tour and taking a dog from the Longton’s to its new owner in Canada.

From the Beginning

In 1981 Angus and Betty McSporran, with their son Neil,  organised a small family trip to Canada for the wedding of a relative. As everybody in the group was involved in farming, Angus, Neil & Betty arranged visits to several attractions in the area as well as a couple of farms and the McCormack International Tractor Factory.


From that family wedding the idea of Bay Farm Tours was hatched and later that year the first escorted group tour went to Canada incorporating the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Year on year we have added numerous worldwide destinations, always chosen carefully to ensure diverse, stimulating and comfortable itineraries.


Angus continued his work in agriculture, and worked as one of the tour guides, accompanied by Betty. Neil commuted between London and Lancashire many weekends before finally leaving his teaching job in July 1983 to work full time in the

Bay Travel office during the day and developing new

itineraries for Bay Farm Tours in the evening. Today Neil

runs Bay Farm Tours and our sister company

Bay Travel with his wife Janet.


Here we would like to thank Angus and Betty,

it was their drive, determination and ambition that

got the business going in those early days.

Testament to Betty's strength and commitment

she was a regular fixture in the office until the last

couple of years. Sadly Betty passed away on the 28th September 2023 and she is sorely missed by all of us in the office.
