Meet The Machinery event a roaring success

Meet the Machinery - Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm ParkThe Cotswold Farm Park, run by BBC 1 Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, ran a very successful first ‘Meet the Machinery’ event last weekend, in their venue near to Stow-on-the-Wold.

For the first time the Cotswold Farm Park let visitors get up close to their biggest pieces of farm equipment and most impressive gadgets, including two John Deere tractors, a New Holland Combine Harvester, a Horsch PT270 Sprayer, a JCB Pivot Steer Forklift along with accessories such as rollers and drilling units.

This active display allowed visitors find out more how they work as well as being able to sit in the driver’s seat of some.

Each afternoon some of the equipment went on a parade around the park with some of the drawing completion winners, which included 6 year oldMacinery Parade at Cotswold Park Farm Robin O’Keeffe and 13 year old Daniel Lee. There was also a place for the onsite quiz winner 6 year old Joseph Williams for a trip in the Polaris farm vehicle.

This was a free addition to the normal farm park active demonstrations of sheep shearing and viewing of newly born piglets (which the young children definitely were very excited about) and tractor driving. There was also a large number or rare breeds on view for the public.

Cattle and MachineryAs Adam Henson commented “This is the first time we have hosted this event and we are really pleased with the number of visitors that have attended, as well as seeing the joy in the children’s faces”.

There are several more special events this summer at the Cotswold Farm Park including the Spinning through the Ages (making the most of the woolly harvest), Farmer’s Market and Falconry Week
