PLOUGHMEN from across the country are expected to make their way to Cheriton Fitzpaine for the 68th Annual Ploughing Match and Produce Show.
Visitors from as far afield as Wales, Sussex, Cornwall and even the Isles of Scilly made their way to the event last year.
This year, organisers are expecting even more people to make their way to the site at Downes Home Farm near Crediton.
Sandra Turner, who helps run the show, said: "It's a chance to compete against each other's skill and expertise and there's always jovial rivalry. There are various ploughing classes, including one for the novice which is always exciting even for the most experienced and senior ploughman, to see a very enthusiastic youngster have a go. "This year we hope to have the ploughing horses once again; they tend to steal the show with their graceful yet steady pace and offer us a glimpse of what ploughing was really like years ago."
The ploughed plots are scored by invited judges, who this year are from Devon and Cornwall. Entry costs £2 per adult, free for children and well-behaved dogs also welcome.
