The Yorkshire Agricultural Society was founded in 1837 to help promote agriculture in the Yorkshire region. Farming is at the very heart of what we do the Society and our year-round charity work to support those living and working in the agricultural sector is vital. Amazingly the five objectives the YAS set all those years ago, remain the same today. The first objective was to run a major agricultural event and the first Great Yorkshire Show was held the following year in 1838. This year’s Show will be held over four days for the first time in its history, Tuesday 13 – 16 July. The other four aims include: supporting and promoting agriculture, advancing and encouraging agricultural research, advancing and encouraging protection and sustainability of the environment as well as other charitable activities. The Yorkshire Agricultural Society is proud to sponsor the Farm of the Year, championing excellence in the region’s rural sector.
