If you visit Orkney in August, you'll soon appreciate that farming is much more than a successful industry.

The County Show brings Orkney's show season to a close on the second Saturday of August.

The Bignold Park in Kirkwall is transformed into a hive of activity, with the best livestock from around the islands on display. Winners from all the local shows join other entrants and the competition is fierce! There are prizes for horses, dogs and pets too.

Visitors can also enjoy an impressive machinery display, fundraising stalls, funfair, food vans and plenty of entertainment. It's great fun for all the family and a chance to celebrate Orkney's rich agricultural heritage.
