En­joy a mini farm

More­ton Show, north Cotswolds

Country Smallholding - - Show Guide 2018 -

Sat, Sept 1

More­ton Show has long en­joyed the rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing one of the coun­try’s big­gest one- day shows, but vis­i­tors to this cor­ner of the north Cotswolds on Septem­ber 1 can look for­ward to see­ing some­thing very small.

Part of the Coun­try­side and Her­itage area on the 150-acre show­ground will be taken up by a mini farm, with sheep, cows, pigs and al­pacas. It’s all the idea of Si­mon and Sarah Righton, who run Old Farm on the Bats­ford Es­tate, a mile north of More­ton in Marsh, where much of their farm’s per­ma­nent pas­ture is taken over by More­ton Show.

Sarah said: ‘Given that More­ton Show is on our land, we wanted to bring our farm to the peo­ple who come to the show. We’ll also be there to an­swer ques­tions.’

But they will not be the only an­i­mals on show at More­ton. This is a show which boasts more than 2,000 an­i­mals, in­clud­ing some of the coun­try’s top horses aim­ing to qual­ify for the end- of-sea­son Horse of the Year Show. MORE: Tick­ets go on sale on July 1 at www.more­ton­show.co.uk.
