This will the fifth event of its kind and showcases products and services covering farms, businesses and communities in the countryside.


Machinery, tractors, plant, metals, diesel, quad bikes, tools, vehicles, caravans, trailers, equine tack, dwellings, barns, stables, and outbuildings are popular targets for criminals so there will be advice available on how to protect them.
