After a two-year absence, we were ecstatic to be back at this year’s Essex Young Farmers Show on Sunday 22 May.

Held at Boyton Hall in Roxwell, the show was a huge hit. With a record attendance of over 18,500 guests, it looks to be one of the best years the event has ever had.

Once again, our specialist Agriculture Team was out in force as one of the Show’s sponsors. Our marquee next to the main ring welcomed visitors who stopped by to chat and enjoy plenty of refreshments in the sun, including bacon rolls, a selection of cakes, scones and Pimms.

There was no shortage of entertainment on offer, with some brilliant displays in the main ring. At the start of the day, 35 vintage tractors chugged around the arena. Visitors also had an introduction to ‘farming through the year’, where shiny, new tractors and machines were paraded, giving an insight into the process of running an arable farm throughout the year.

Guests watched in awe at the Flyin’ Ryan Motorcycle Stunt Show and Ben Atkinson Action Horses and cheered loudly during the ever-popular lawn mower racing.

Over at the Livestock ring, locals could see the best cattle, pigs and sheep compete for the title of ‘Overall Champion’. There were also plenty of opportunities to shop at over 100 trade stands, as well rural crafts and food stalls.

Alongside this, a selection of fairground rides and the popular tug-of-war competition ensured that there really was something for everyone.

Caroline Peters, Head of our Agriculture Team, commented: “We’re so pleased that Essex Young Farmers has been able to bring back the Show in 2022, and with such an impressive turnout!

“The Essex Young Farmers Show is a staple event in the farming calendar, and we are incredibly proud to be a part of it. Congratulations to the event organisers on another brilliant show, and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.”

Essex Young Farmers is one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK, and has supported young people from 16-28 with an interest in agriculture since 1943.

The group has been running the Essex Young Farmers Show for over 30 years, organised and run by an elected committee of members. For more information, please visit the Essex Young Farmers’ website .
