Ploughing

2017 Ploughing Match & Show

Our 2017 Ploughing Match and Show was held at Frogmore Farm, Littlewick Green.
We are very grateful to Christopher and Rowena Westacott for hosting the Match.  

We were once again blessed with wonderful weather and a fantastic venue at Frogmore Farm, with way over 1000 visitors and our marvellous ploughmen and judges taking part in the annual ploughing competition – a wonderful sight to see. With amazing sponsorship support from our corporate exhibitors and commercial stands, the day was undoubtedly our most successful so far.

Our food stands, the delicious ploughmen’s lunches and bar were very popular all day, with the lovely Macmillan tea, coffee and cake stand making an astounding £1,300.00 for the charity and our live auction of the fruit, veg and flower stand raised our best total to date!

Show attractions including; traditional horse ploughing, modern ploughing, a miniature steam engine, traditional tractor log cutting display, trailer rides around the ground, ice cream van, interactive bird of prey display and metal detecting – all went down a storm with the public and members alike.

Our domestic classes had a fabulous entry, creating great interest in the marquee, as did the Association’s history in photographs display and the dog show was our biggest and best so far, with an astonishing entry of 80 gorgeous dogs.

The first REBAA polo match was held by kind permission of Carlitos and Kim from Play Polo at Smewins Farm, White Waltham. The final was played by Team Tonic and Young’s Farm Polo and Team Tonic won, 4 to 2.5. Kim kindly explained the rules of polo which was received by the spectators with interest. There were pony rides for our younger members and after the match we were provided with a lamb bbq with all the trimmings, known in Argentina as an asado. The meat was cooked for 5 hours over an open fire, the food was in abundance and delicious. After eating we had a game of rounders to finish off a superb day.

We had a superb Rural Farm Walk at Church Farm last evening, attended by 90 REBAA farmers and councillors. We looked at crops and new forward thinking farm and environment methods, followed by a hog roast. Superb evening had by all.
