Your Harrogate tractor to be in place during Great Yorkshire Show

The Your Harrogate Tractor will be on the Knaresborough Young Farmer's stand during the Great Yorkshire Show.

Your Harrogate tractor to be in place during Great Yorkshire Show

Your Harrogate will be with you throughout the Great Yorkshire Show next week - whether that be travel news from the skies, on the road... Or on the showground itself!

The Your Harrogate Tractor will take pride of place on the Showground thanks to our friends at Yorkshire Young Farmers.

The branded John Deere tractor was first wheeled out during the Great Knaresborough Bed Race where it was quite the talking point during the parade.

But that's not the only local event that will be graced by the vehicle as it will now be appearing at perhaps the biggest one of them all.

Your Harrogate Content Director and presenter Nick Hancock said:

"As the Yorkshire show is all about celebrating the best of country and agricultural life around Harrogate, what better way for us to fit in than in a beautiful John Deere tractor?!

"We can’t wait to bring our listeners and followers all the action from the show from the Your Harrogate Tractor."

The tractor will be the subject of a guessing game with Yorkshire Young Farmers throughout the four-day show, which runs from Tuesday 11th until Friday 14th July.

Kelsey Williamson, Secretary of the Young Farmers, said:

“The Great Yorkshire Show is a great opportunity to see fellow YFC members not just from Yorkshire but further a field too.

"We also use this as a chance to show the public and future members what YFC is about… it’s not just farming (despite the name!) we do a range of competitions, events and volunteering!

"At GYS we welcome some amazing charities onto our stand - Yellow Wellies, FCN, Papyrus and Addington Fund these charities play key roles within the farming community from farm safety advise to highlighting mental health within the industry and offering support.

"The opportunity to host Your Harrogate on the stand for 2023 was welcomed with open arms by YFC members as a chance to work with yet another local business and a new, fun way to promote what YFC does at the show and away from GYS.”
