FARM FESTIVAL – 11 SEPTEMBER 2010
The annual Farm Festival will take place on 11 September 2010 at the Willem Prinsloo Agricultural Museum. The museum is approximately 20km East of Pretoria next to the N4 highway. The festival is for all enthusiasts of farm activities, veteran and new agricultural equipment and associated items. The exhibitions include ploughing, threshing, milling, etc. There will also be farm and food stalls where something can be bought. There is a restaurant, picnic and braai facilities for visitors. We are trying to encourage the youth to participate in maintaining our heritage by conserving veteran agricultural equipment and traditional methods. The farm festival is hosted at the Willem Prinsloo Agricultural Museum in collaboration with the Highveld Veteran Tractor and Engine Club as well as various other interested groups. All income goes to the Willem Prinsloo Agricultural Museum for the maintenance of equipment. The festival will commence at 9:00 and end at about 17:00.
