The North Somerset Agricultural Society was formed out of the North Somerset Ploughing Society in 1840 by a small group of farmers.
Its sole purpose was to further agricultural development by communicating agricultural issues and providing a showpiece to the local, general public. To this day these aims still ring true.
In 2011 the society started Countryside Day, a bi-annual event aimed at educating primary school children, from North Somerset and Bristol, about agriculture, the journey their food takes from field to plate and rural crafts. The next Countryside Day will take place in 2015; if you are involved with a local school and would be interested in taking part, please contact the office.
