2020 Theme: ‘Using Traditional Buildings in a Modern Agricultural and/or Food and Drink Production Business’


The winner will be presented with the Peniarth Estate Silver Trowel given by the late

Col J F Williams-Wynne CBE DSO MA FRAgS. In addition, the winner will be presented with a Certificate and Memento.

The competition will feature each county in Wales in turn, and for 2020 the county is Clwyd. Any scheme submitted must be in this county, although the competitor may reside elsewhere.

A few details:

Judges will be looking for the integration of new building(s) within the existing farmstead if appropriate, both in terms of efficiency and visual appearance. Judges will not be looking for elaborate schemes.

When making their inspection the judges will pay great importance to innovations involving the use of structures and/or materials from other industries adapted or modified for use on the farm and designs specifically intended to avoid or significantly reduce the pollution of soil, water or air.

There will be no limitation to the size of the farm or holding and there will be no bias in favour of the amount of capital spent on the improvement. Small schemes will have equal chance with large ones.

Competitors need not necessarily be the owner or occupier, if neither, they must obtain their consent and state on the entry their interests.

If you have an interest in having a nomination, you will have needed to make contact with the Committee by Friday 27 March 2020.

Judging will take place on Monday 1 June 2020 and will include a visit by the Judges.

The presentation to the winner will take place during the 2020 Show.
