By this time next week, the first Scottish Smallholder and Grower Festival will be over! The first Scottish Smallholder and Grower Festival in Forfar market
on Sunday, September 30 will be a showcase for the crafters and
smallholders of Scotland alike.
But meantime, the organisers are putting the final touches to the livestock , poultry and waterfowl show; to the food and craft competitions and fair; to the trade stand exhibits and the demonstrations and seminars.
The livestock shows have attracted entries from a wide range of breeds – six breeds of pig, fourteen breeds of sheep and five breeds of goat. Tim Tyne, well-known smallholder and author of “The Sheep Book for Smallholders” is judging the sheep interbreed Champion, with the winner taking home silverware, a bag of feed donated by Marriages Feeds. And the Champion goat will win a year’s subscription to “Smallholder” magazine for its exhibitor, kindly donated by the publisher.
Tickets are available on-line at a discounted price until 9am on Wednesday 26th September. Full details and programme are available on the website www.scottishsmallholdershow.co.uk
