The Haddington Agricultural Show is coming to East Lothian on Saturday 2nd July. Based at the East Fortune Airfield, it’s an annual county show, offering the best in farming and country living. There are opportunities to meet animals and livestock, watch tractor driving challenges, explore the latest in farming practices, and try the local produce.
A fortnight tomorrow, the show is a one-day event on Saturday 2nd July 2022.
And I am so very excited to say that The Wise Old Owl will be in the craft tent. I have a stall for the day and will set up my products for you to browse and purchase. I’ve been working very hard these last few weeks to biuld up my stock and have lots of new things for you on the day. I’m thrilled to have been invited to take part and I’m so looking forward to meeting you and chatting to folks throughout the event.
My connection to Haddington and East Lothian goes way back. I have relatives on both my mother’s and my father’s side of the family who live and work in the area. Both farmers, I spent much of my childhood in and around the East Lothian countryside, enjoying the long sandy beaches and the rolling green hills. It’s a very special place and holds a very special place in my heart.
My granny lived on a farm just outside of Haddington and I have very fond memories of holidays and trips to visit her and my cousins, taking our bikes out along the farm track, yomping through the barley stubble, and hearing the roar of the grain drier each summer. Pure bliss!
