Lincolnshire Show 2022
Dyson Farming in the community: The Lincolnshire Show
Dyson Farming attended the 2022 Lincolnshire Show this week, the first since 2019. Sponsoring the Schools’ Challenge and educating visitors on the technologies used throughout our estates, the day was a roaring success.
The Schools’ Challenge took place across both days with school children of all ages taking part. We sponsored the ‘Food for Thought’ challenge, which encouraged primary children to develop healthy and nutritious snacks for throughout the school day.
They were also encouraged to use produce grown at school and to create an awareness campaign to promote the importance of healthy eating. From potato skins to beetroot brownies, there were some brilliant ideas on show, with one school even handing out sample honey from their school bees.
Dyson Farming Managing Director, Daniel Cross, was part of a team of judges who looked closely at each entry, listening to presentations from the children, whose enthusiasm and expertise were brilliant to see. Congratulations to all the schools involved for their hard work and impressive displays.
Our team of experts were on hand to chat to visitors, while displays helped explain how technologies such as anaerobic digestion contribute to our circular farming system. Other areas of the stand demonstrated how we invest in our soils and carefully manage our natural capital to support wildlife. Sample strawberries, grown in our 15-acre Carrington Glasshouse, were also on offer for visitors passing by which proved to be a real treat for all ages.
The show took on a purple theme to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with plenty on offer for any age and interest. The traditional agricultural theme took precedence with 2500 animals and the latest farming tech and innovation on show, while classic cars, BMX shows, shopping stalls and plenty more offered variation throughout the day. A Spitfire flyby was one highlight and the RAF Falcons amazed crowds with their parachute displays above the main ring.
