WEDNESDAY sees the 108th annual Brailsford and District Ploughing and Hedgecutting Society taking place, this year in Barrow-upon-Trent.
The match, which moves to a different farm venue each year, takes place from 9am until 5pm and attracts thousands of people.
The arrival of the traditional event, which sees competitors travel in from around the country to compete in ploughing, hedgelaying, growing and other rural traditions, has been welcomed by bosses at South Derbyshire County Council.
The authority’s chairman Ann Hood, who plans to attend the event, said: “I am very proud that this important agricultural event is happening in our district.
“It’s a true farming show with competitions to judge such as the best commercial beef, cattle, sheep, maize, cereal and just about everything agricultural.
“It will be a fantastic occasion for people living in the countryside and in our towns and villages.”
Admission costs £6 for adults and £4 for senior citizens and children under 14.
