A FAMILY day of farming fun was on offer at the weekend at the annual Central and West Fife show.

Traditional farming displays combined with activities for visitors of all ages at the event at Hilton Farm, near Kelty.

Committee chairman, June Geyer, said the day had been a great success.

"We are probably the oldest show in Scotland, if not Britain, and started off in Dunfermline back in 1760 and are still going," she explained.

"We had things for all ages, for older people there was an exhibition of the history of mining in the area as the field it is held on was a reclaimed coal mine.

"There were lots of baby animals for children to go and pet and they got to milk a real goat – and a plastic cow. There were chicks being hatched, baby lambs to feed."

This year saw a record number of animal entrants in the show with around 40 Clydesdale Horses with carts as well as record numbers of sheep and cattle.

"We are one of the few shows in the area which has dairy cattle in the show," added June. "It was great, there were competitors from Northumberland, judges from Turrif and Martin Irvine from Farming Live came down to judge as well.

"We call it a farming family day out. It gives people the opportunity to see animals up close and lets them experience a bit of country life."

Cookery demonstrations, tug of war contests, crafts stalls, children's storytelling were also taking place during the course of the day.
