Men and women showed off their agricultural prowess during a ploughing competition with vintage tractors.
About 40 people competed in the event, which was organised by the East Anglian branch of the Ferguson Club, on Sunday at Hall Farm in Fornham St Martin.
Two married couples were amongst those to take part as well as father and daughter Steve and Gemma Arbon. She was crowned ladies champion while her father came third in the Suffolk section.
Henry Castle, chairman of the club branch, said the competition was “fiercely contested” and “gets more serious each year”.
He said it was a celebration of farming life, adding: “We had a great day, we really did.”
The competition was held at Hall Farm by permission of Andrew Long and was sponsored by Silver Fox Tractor Spares Ltd.
A collection for the East Anglian Air Ambulance raised £380.
