British National Ploughing Championships-2006
The event is run by the Society of Ploughmen, founded in 1972, a registered charity run by volunteers from the farming community whose main function is to organise the annual championships. With more than 250 local ploughing societies affiliated to it and a membership drawn from ploughmen and women from all over the world, the Society is a vibrant, thriving organisation and an influential member of the World Ploughing Organisation.
However, if you are keen to get involved, membership is not restricted to ploughmen and women alone. Anyone can join and there are many members who have joined purely out of a love of farming and the countryside.
