Free day out to celebrate farming

Farming, and its associated industries, such as food processing and haulage, are THE big businesses in south Lincolnshire. Even if you are not personally involved in the sector it's hard not to notice - we are all surrounded by fields and crops all the time.

And the second Celebration of Farming event will take place in Boston Market Place on Sunday, March 18, from 10am to 3pm.

Following on from last year's first successful show, the event, organised by Boston Borough Council, will again be free to attend and will feature fun events for all ages including vintage tractors and machinery, new machinery and trade stands.

And it won't all be arable - livestock farming will be represented by The Sheep Roadshow - a fun and educational look at sheep and wool to include a sheep shearing demonstration, weather permitting.

Cabbage bowling was a big hit last year and will make a return.

Lincolnshire farming broadcaster and author Alan Stennett will give a talk "Changes in Lincolnshire Farming" at 2pm in the Guildhall, £3 a ticket. In the 2015 New Year Honours Alan received the British Empire Medal for his services to agriculture and broadcasting in Lincolnshire.

There will be a pop-up cafe in the Guildhall.

Anyone who would like to get involved in this event or display any agricultural items, new or historical, should email events@boston.gov.uk
