About Us


The Yorkshire Agricultural Society was founded in 1837 to help improve and promote agriculture in the region.

Educating future generations is an important part of the Society’s work, as is encouraging and supporting the agricultural community. Our educational programme of activities include free courses for teachers, learning activity sheets, Farmhouse Breakfast, Countryside Days, Careers in Focus, Great Yorkshire Show Discovery Zone and veg/fruit box competitions.

The Yorkshire Agricultural Society also organises and hosts the annual Great Yorkshire Show, Springtime Live and Countryside Live, which all take place on the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate.
