The Irish Tillage and Land Use Society is celebrating 50 years in 2019 and is holding its celebration this Thursday, June 20.
Hugh is a long serving member of the organisation and a range of old varieties will be on display on the farm, including wheat, barley and oats.
John’s late father Stan was the first president of the society. There will be a large range of vintage, classic and modern machinery on display on the farm and members will discuss mechanisation on tillage farms over the years.
A book to mark the 50th anniversary will be launched at 6:00pm and this will be followed by dinner.
Registration begins at 10:30am on the day of the event. Those wishing to attend either, or both, events should email: [email protected] as soon as possible.
