Entries have now closed for the competition, but you can still cheer for your favourite tractor.  As well as the traditional ploughing competitions, there are five different classes in the Tractor Pull to keep you entertained, as well as sheaf-pitching.

Throughout the day, there will be a barbecue serving sizzling burgers and bacon baps.  Leave some space in your tummy, and treat yourself to a delicious cake from the Domestic Tent which will also be housing beautiful flowers, crafts, photos, and the entries for the farm produce competition.

Spend some time admiring the Vintage Tractor section – including the best Original, and Best Restored.

When the ploughing is over, the day is still far from done.  If you have a good eye for a shot (or even if your don’t), there is the opportunity to take part in the a clay pigeon shoot.

 

Round off your day by dancing at the disco – as they say on their website, “There ain’t no party like a Young Farmers Party!”
