Four seasons of farming at Royal Cheshire Show

Agriculture in abundance at prestigious county show

Farming has never been more in the public eye than it has during the last few years – and organisers of the county’s premier agricultural show are hoping to take its 80,000 audience on an exciting journey through the farming year this June.

An exciting new Delemere Dairies main ring attraction has been designed to bring modern farming techniques to life.

Introducing visitors to the giants of modern farming technology from ploughs to combines, those attending The Royal Cheshire County Show will see first hand the power of the machines used to bring their food to the table.

Cheshire Show visitors will have an opportunity to explore the different agricultural processes deployed throughout the year including ploughing, drilling, spraying and harvesting. 

The display will capture the imaginations of young and old with demonstrations of the fascinating processes involved in modern farming.

“We want to showcase the enormous combined effort that goes into producing food,” said show chairman Tony Garnett.

“Farming has become an abstract process that few really understand and associate with the food on their plates. We want to help bridge this gap and at the same time ignite an interest in youngsters who could be our farmers of the future.”

Along with the main ring attraction, the Agri Centre is being billed a must-see for all visitors who want to learn more about where their food comes from and how it’s delivered from the region’s producers to their plates.

This will involve fun, lively, interactive displays.

The Royal Cheshire County Show’s exceptional show animals, exclusive performances, favourite attractions, bustling trade and agricultural pride will mean there is again something for everyone.

Every year, the show also has sports fans on the edge of their seats watching the show jumping. Attracting over 80,000 visitors each year, The Royal Cheshire County Show encapsulates everything we know and love about summertime in Cheshire.

The show takes place on the 20th and 21st June 2017. Find out more:
