This will be the 46th Annual Newdegate Machinery Field Day event which features machinery, technology and research, animals and livestock, outdoor and camping exhibits, art and photography, fashion, show bags, food and wine, local produce, live entertainment and much, much more celebrating and promoting everything agriculture.
