The Melplash Agricultural Show has a long history back to 1847, and it is more popular now than ever.

It is located on the coast near Bridport, and it celebrates the best of agricultural and rural life by the sea. Not only does it showcase West Dorset farmers, but the Discover Farming Marquee is just one of the many things available for children to learn and discover what is involved in the rearing and producing of food and where it comes from.

There is a huge food hall and over 350 trade stands. The traders sell everything from locally produced food to large vehicles such as tractors. You can go and chat to the traders, they are a passionate bunch and will do their best to answer your questions about their produce. Street food is available too, with some fantastic dishes, including a hog roast. Food genres from outside the UK are available such as Mexican and Thai specialities made from local ingredients.

There will be lots to take home as well; homemade pasties, pies and burgers, sausage rolls and crab cakes. Vegetarians are catered for, there are lots of stalls offering local cheeses and salads, vegetarian tapas and falafal wraps.

Sweet treats are always popular and with everything from handmade fudge through to artisan cakes to a complete cream tea there is going to be something for everyone. Devon or Dorset cider will be on hand along with lots of different hot and cold drinks, including the strange and original artisan cordials or vodka milk!

There is plenty to amuse with Jason Smyths Adrenalin Tour with quads and motorcyles performing death-defying stunts. Animal lovers will like the sheep shearing and the horse shows, the hawk displays and the ferret racing.


Music will be provided throughout the day and everyone will have an amazing time.
