Event Overview

Western Rural Event at Manor Farm, St Peter

Sunday 8 July 2018 10am -  5pm

The Western Rural Day will include demonstrations of breezing, hay-turning (using horse and then tractor), loading a hay van and then baling and opportunities to see horse-shoeing and cows being milked. Vintage tractors and other old machines will also be displayed. Classic Herd will be demonstrating how to make cheese and butter. 

The Jersey Association of the National Vegetable Society will demonstrate how to sow seeds and plant vegetables and will set up a vegetable garden and a display of Jersey-grown vegetables. Entries to this year’s primary school vegetable and herb wheelbarrow display competition will also be on show in a small marquee – in which many of the Island’s primary schools will be competing to win prizes (sponsored by the Channel Islands Co-operative Society). 

Other activities will include a companion dog show run by the Jersey Dog Handlers’ Association.
