Around 250 champion ploughmen and women from all over Britain compete in Lincolnshire over a two-day country festival.

This amazing event is held in a different part of the country each year.  It’s not just ploughing though: it offers a rare glimpse of how farming has changed over the past 300 years – magnificent heavy horses and many styles of vintage tractors and equipment; giant steam ploughing engines; and demonstrations of the most up-to-date machinery of the present day.

Visitors will see not only the highly skilled competition ploughing and an extensive agricultural trade stand area and demonstrations of some of the latest machinery available but also attractions such as vintage tractors, ploughs and equipment; steam ploughing engines; a craft marquee with a wide variety of exhibitors; and rural and vintage machinery displays, and tractor & trailer rides.

There will be plenty of food outlets available and car parking is free.

Please visit the Society of Ploughmen website for more details and a schedule of the event.
