Gallery: Country life on show at Easton Farm Park

Suffolk Young Farmers Country Farm, Easton.

Suffolk Young Farmers Country Farm, Easton.

Young farmers from across the county descended on Easton near Woodbridge yesterday for their annual country fair.

Spurred on by the glorious weather, more than 1,000 people attended the event at Easton Farm Park which included a wide range of outdoor activities and demonstrations.

These included dog agility demonstrations, a parade of vintage tractors and a horse show. Young children enjoyed a number of fairground rides while grown-up, more burly members of the farming fraternity tried their strength at tossing hay bales.

Other attractions included a converted Ford Fiesta car, which required two young farmers to drive it – one controlling the pedals and the other one sat on an armchair attached to the roof.

“We’ve had an amazing day. There’s been a real buzz about the place,” said Tory Nugsden, county organiser for Suffolk Young Farmers, who estimated the event had raised about £3,000 for the organisation. The money will go towards training members and paying for staff.

Ms Nugsden had special praise for the Suffolk Young Farmers county chairman John Dickson whose hard work ensured more than 40 trade stalls were in place for the day.

The event was sponsored by a number of firms including East of England Co-operative Society and Ensors.
