It's that time again! The HASTINGS COUNTY PLOWING MATCH and FARM SHOW is back!
This year I am proud to announce that we are in my home township of Hungerford in the Municipality of Tweed on the shores of the beautiful Stoco Lake! Local farmers and business owners-Scott and Angela Trudeau-along with their young family, will graciously open the doors to their farm, fields and lakefront at 302 Stoco Road on Wednesday, August 22nd and Thursday August 23rd. This will be YOUR time to come out and see all that relates to agriculture, farm life, gardening, agri-business and country living! We are so excited that this event has been enjoyed now for 30 years! It has stood the test of time-with a volunteer team that has donated insurmountable man hours to ensure its annual success. Many of our volunteers have been with us since day one, turning the original vision into an incredible reality. For this, I personally want to extend a huge thank you to them all and invite new volunteers on board at anytime!
Check out our new exhibitors in the woodlot, the crafts or the demos. The Family Tent is sure to entice you with their special guests, and don't forget all the neat stuff in the Children's Tent that will keep active minds captivated! There will be several Food Booth choices to satisfy your appetite and of course, the 4-H milkshake booth. And let us not forget-the plowing! Both tractor and horse classes along with the 4-H, the Dignitary and Media class. You be the judge! You don't know anything about plowing you say? Well we will have many on hand to explain the process of this fine art. Antique tractors will parade through the grounds each day, along with static displays and active demonstrations of the machines of yesterday.
Stop at the Main Tent for the Opening Ceremony, the Crowning of the Queen of the Furrow, and where a much deserving student will receive a bursary to further their education in the agricultural stream. More details about our bursary program can be found on our website AND of course, since we are in the municipality of Tweed-you are sure to see Elvis there! Thank you....Thank you very much....
Come out for a midweek break and join us for two days of fun, fellowship and friendship at the 2018 HASTINGS COUNTY PLOWING MATCH and FARM SHOW. Save the date and hope to see you there!
