Farmers will be hitching up their horses for the 60th Annual Ploughing Match and Cereal Show tomorrow.
A horse ploughing class will be held at 10.30am at Great Lodge Farm, Great Bardfield, then members of the public can get their hands dirty and have a go themselves.
Swithin Waterer, a member of the Greenstead Green and District Agricultural Club who are organising the competition, said: “All the local farmers get together and show off their skills and also bring along a samples of their crops to be judged.
“It’s an opportunity for the general public to see how their crops go from plough to plate and what farmers get up to during the harvest.”
Demonstrations will run throughout the day and a bar and other refreshments will be available.
A presentation will be held at 3pm.
