We were really excited to be part of what was billed as the ‘Greatest Online Agriculture Show‘ on Saturday 2nd May. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we were able to share with you all the wonderful things that go on at Road Farm Countryways, including the Countrymen’s Club group, cooking workshops, school visits and 1:1 Farm Helpers experiencing hands on work at the farm.
The Online Agricultural Show was conjured up in response to the sad news of the cancellation of so many agricultural shows across the country, as restrictions on movement due to the Coronavirus Pandemic were put in place. The show was a bit of fun, to honour the shows that have had to cancel this year as well as the crafts-people and traders who rely on them.

- Main ring demonstrations and entertainment
- Livestock competitions including a dog show and equestrian show
- Beer tent with live entertainment and disco in the evening
