Ashford 'Fat Stock Show' Monday 30th Nov and Tues 1st Dec, at Ashford Cattle Market on the orbital road.
In addition to local farmers, a huge amount of the competition comes from the various schools and young farmers clubs. the animals are beautifully cared for and the children are proud of their skills.
As well as live animals, which will be auctioned on the Tuesday, there are dressed carcases of pigs, sheep and turkeys competing, so this is not an event for any vegetarians, however! On the other hand, if you'd like your children to understand more about where their food comes from, this is an excellent place to start. Wear warm clothes and sensible shoes, although all activities are under cover so rain isn't a problem.
