"Looking Back"

From October 07 10:00 am until October 07 4:00 pm

This popular event at Hay Farm Heavy Horse Centre provides visitors with the opportunity to see Heavy Horses working in the fields and view horse drawn machinery through to the first working tractors as well as meeting the centre's own horses in their stables. There will be an excellent selection of craft and foodie stalls in the market area and a range of demonstrators located in the undercover seating area, where refreshments are also available.

In its day Hay Farm was an integral part of Ford & Etal Estates as the standing steam engines for threshing were located here. In years gone by seventeen heavy horses worked the land and moved cereals down to Heatherslaw for milling. Still working today, making flour from locally grown wheat and using traditional methods, visitors can combine a visit to the Mill with their day out at Hay Farm, taking the short leisurely walk down past the working horses (or alternatively a short drive).

This is truly a family event, evoking memories in the older generation and giving younger family members an insight into rural life in years gone by.
