One of the festival’s highlights is the traditional haymaking demonstration, where visitors can witness the age-old process of turning freshly cut hay into haycocks. It’s a fascinating sight to behold, offering a glimpse into the agricultural practices of yesteryears. Alongside the haymaking, vintage machines will be on display, showcasing the evolution of farming technology over the decades. It’s a journey through time that will captivate both young and old.
