Food, Farming and the Countryside Discovery Zone

With Agriculture being at the core of the Aylsham Show, we aim to showcase it, together with affiliated organisations and businesses, in a way that inspires and encourages the next generation to immerse themselves in learning about food, farming and the countryside.

To help us promote and inform the public about our vibrant and vital sector we have enlisted key local and other organisations such as; The Sheep Show, Norfolk Young Farmers, Food and Farming Discovery Trust, Easton College, Aylsham Slow Food, Papillion Project, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust and Compassion in World Farming. All of these organisations will be engaging with attendees on their interactive and thought provoking stands.

The Show is a wonderful opportunity to improve awareness and understanding to the public, to highlight where their food comes from, how farming integrates within our environment and, crucially, gives a positive image of the fascinating world of agriculture and its related industries.

The area will also be host to the some of the shows prestigious awards in the form of the Farm Business Competitions and the announcement of the Food and Drink Heroes winners, a fantastic celebration of those who are passionate about local produce.

There will also be a trail for children that will lead you on a journey of discovery through the showground, ending at the Food Farming and the Countryside Discovery Zone Marquee which can be found off the main thoroughfares in the centre of the Agricultural area. It will be well signposted.

We look forward to welcoming you for a day of fun and farming!
