On Thursday the 9th July the Gloucestershire Root Fruit and Grain Society http://www.grfgs.com/ held a cultivation event just down the road from us at Middle Farm Oxenton. We were treated to over 100 acres of working machinery demonstrations. There were 10 local farm machinery dealers present to demonstrate the latest farm machinery. It is really a great event to actually see these machines and tractors working in very similar soil types and conditions to those that we deal with at Overbury. There were also static displays from many other local and national firms all connected with the farming industry from grain traders to local colleges. The society has had to cancel this event for the past two summers due to terrible weather, but this year it all ran very smoothly and it was a credit to everyone who made it possible, looking forward to next years event!
