Well-known TVpresenter and Cotswold farming royalty Adam Henson, threw open the ‘barn doors’ to his popular Cotswold Farm Park this week, to celebrate the county of Gloucestershire being named as the host for this year’s Royal Three Counties Show.
Hailed as one of the UK’s biggest celebrations of the Great British countryside, the Royal Three Counties Show offers three days of food, farming and family fun from 16 – 18 June 2023 at Three Counties Showground in Malvern.
The event boasts over 6,000 animals across 35 showing rings, the UK’s largest collection of rare breeds and an array of livestock and national breed shows crowning cattle, sheep, goats and pigs across 900 classes. So, the Farm Park was the perfect location for the host county event, with representatives from the area’s farming, countryside and food sectors on hand to celebrate all that is great about Gloucestershire.
Each year one of the three counties takes the host role and it moves between Worcestershire, Herefordshireand Gloucestershire. To mark the occasion a new Future of Farming Zone is being launched at the show, with aline-up of informative talks, Q&A sessions, networking opportunities and insights into the evolution of the agricultural industry, that feature the latest cutting-edge technology in food and farming.
