Posted on: Thursday 8 September 2022
Greenmeadow Farm Tractor Pull
The Greenmeadow Show is back at the farm this weekend after a two-year absence. 

The show has a wide range of fun activities, demonstrations and entertainment, as well as chance to view all of the fabulous exhibits in the 30th edition of the Horticultural and Craft Show this Sunday.

The event has classes for everyone and there is still time for total beginners or professionals on the horticultural and craft show scene to enter their prize flowers, tomatoes or Victoria sponge.

This year there are also lots of competitions for children’s including cookery, photography and writing.

Councillor Fiona Cross, Executive Member for Children, Families and Communities, said: “The farm show is a great family event with something for everyone throughout the day where you can try something new, enjoy traditional games and join in with all the fun.

"We will also have wonderful food available all day from our very own Honeycomb Cafe and we’ll have Pizza Stone Wales on site selling their tasty wood-fired pizzas and puddings.

Tickets can be bought in advance and are also available for purchase on the day. You can buy tickets online or by calling 01633 647662.
