Desford Scarecrow Festival

We are annual sponsors of the Desford Scarecrow Festival, supplying unlimited straw for scarecrow building! We also provide and place bales for seating. 

This year's festival will take place from Saturday the 26th to Monday the 28th of August. We can't wait to see what you make! 

The Ashby Show

We are proud sponsors of the Ashby Show, one of the biggest agricultural shows in the Midlands. 


Set in the English countryside, in the heart of the National Forest, the show is committed to the support of agriculture and the drawing together of town and country.

Facilitated by the Ashby de la Zouch & District Agricultural Society, p​rofits from the show go to fund scholarships for agricultural students from the local area.
