Toss the Sheaf

We have been running this event now for over 25 years, and it is a firm favourite with our local, and not so local farmers.

So test your strength and skill on our sheaf toss.  This country show favourite has origins in the Highland Games, but kilts are strictly optional!

Competitors use a traditional two prong fork to try and throw our straw sheaf over the bar.  The bar is on a farm lift, so we can vary the height.

You can have a go throughout the day, with separate men’s and women’s competitions running, concluding in two thrilling finals in the afternoon.

The finals are a definite highlight of the day, and you’ll be cheered on by hundreds of showgoers!

We award prizes for the top male, and top female competitor.
