74th Annual Ploughing Match & Produce Show

74th Annual Ploughing Match & Produce Show

This year our match is being held at Lower living near Shobrooke, on Sunday 15th September by kind permission of Mr & Mrs G Kerslake and Mr & Mrs R Knight Bruce. 

The match will be signed off the A3072 near Crediton and off the A377 near Langford Bridge EX17 1AH

The event consists of a ploughing competition where entrants have to plough a designated plot area and they are judged on their skill and finish. 

We are hoping to have the ploughing horses in action again too along with many varieties of ploughs ranging from vintage to modern versions.

We normally attract around 50 entries and if you are one of the winning ploughmen you gain points which can then gain you entry to larger, even national competitions.

We also hold a craft and produce competition and show which anyone can enter for a bit of fun.  There are numerous adult classes consisting of baking, crafts, photography, garden produce and floristry. Entry is 50p per class and win could get a £3 prize, but it is the fun of entering and competing, our country version of the craft off, veg off and not forgetting the bake off!  All entries are judged in the morning and the tent displays are then on show and available to view 11.15 onwards on the day.  There is a selection of children’s classes for ages of under 4’s and up to 16yrs free of charge with the chance of winning a some pocket money if placed first second or third.

There is a refreshment catering van and ice creams to purchase on site and from 2.30pm onwards cream teas are served in the marquee to the public.  Entry is £2 per adult with children going free.

It’s not too late to enter, please do get in contact if you fancy having a go. We welcome all entries and especially new ones.  If you are unable to attend on the day any entries can be dropped off locally and then taken no the day for you.  Please do phone (07791347788) or email our secretary Mrs Julie Davie (julie_davie@outlook.com) for details or find us on Facebook.
