Founded in 1837 the Yorkshire Agricultural Society aims to help to improve and promote agriculture in the region.
It also arranges a programme of events for schoolchildren, students and teachers; and provides support to organisations connected with agriculture: Educating future generations is an important part of the Society’s work, as is encouraging and supporting the development of rural businesses. Our website, see box on the left hand side, allows you to find out about our achievements in 2011, along with forthcoming activities for 2012.
The Yorkshire Agricultural Society also organises and hosts the annual Great Yorkshire Show and Countryside Live both of which take place on the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate. The Yorkshire Agricultural Society is a registered charity and member organisation – with around 10,000 members who help to support the Society’s work.
