The Society of Ploughmen have announced that the planned “Festival of
Farming” has been cancelled. The event was due to be held on 28th March
2010 on land at Lindholme, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
Ken Chappell, Executive Director of the Society of Ploughmen said, “ It is extremely disappointing that we have had to cancel, but our Executive Committee reluctantly made this decision. We are now going to put all our efforts into making a success of celebrating the 60th British National Ploughing Championships, which will be held at Grange-de-Lings, near Lincoln on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October.”
Held in a different part of the country each year, this year's Championships are being held by kind permission of H R Bourn & Son and around 200 of Britain’s top ploughmen will be competing for the National titles. Briefly, the two days will be packed with competitions for many different styles of ploughing and different types of plough, from the graceful horse ploughing of bygone years to vintage and classic tractors, to today's sophisticated tractors and ploughs. A large part of the site will be taken by companies with machinery demonstrations, trade stands and craft displays. Main sponsors are Goodyear and Bridgestone/Firestone.
