There will be a Farmers’ Market with interactive stalls where you can buy and try farmed ingredients, and discover more about different farming methods, including Blodyn Aur Welsh rapeseed oil; Grosmont Wood Dairy local milk; The Wild by Nature Meat Box Company (a community of farmers, butchers and chefs, working sustainably with nature in the Black Mountains); the Biodynamic Association (promoting a uniquely holistic approach to organic agriculture, gardening, food and health); and The Seed Co-operative (the UK’s community owned seed company, producing British grown open-pollinated seed.)

We are delighted to welcome back Frank Sutton Ltd, the Raglan John Deere dealership, who are bringing a state of the art tractor, and will be giving visitors the opportunity to look inside the tractor cab and watch a demonstration on technology and farming. They will also have a trailer celebrating 100 years of John Deere tractors and a display of their Native cattle breeds from the British Longhorn to the Rare Breed White Park, and their American bison with Frank Sutton visiting throughout the festival to explain more about these fascinating breeds and share his tractor stories.
