J & B Farnaby to host 2011 TGA Turf Show
The Turfgrass Growers Association (TGA) has announced that J & B Farnaby will host its 2011 Turf Show.
The biennial event will be held at the 500 acre turf farm run by husband and wife team Jeff and Barbara Farnaby along with son Paul, situated just off the A1 at Scotch Corner on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th June 2011.
Focusing on all aspects of turf production, the show attracts growers from as far afield as Italy, Slovenia and Norway who visit to see demonstrations of the latest machinery and product innovations used in the growing and harvesting of quality cultivated turf.
TGA Chief Executive Tim Mudge said that he was pleased to see the show move north for 2011: “The Farnaby’s have a superb site at Scotch Corner and planning is already well underway for the event. We always ask for feedback after our shows and have made a few changes to the format following the 2009 event at Q Lawns. We’ll be having a half day preview the day before the show itself to enable people to view machinery before the show demonstrations get underway. The main draw is undoubtedly the opportunity to see specialist equipment at work and we’ve also extended the demonstration programme so visitors will be able to see machinery working throughout the second day.”
Full details will be available shortly from the show website at www.turfshow.co.uk or from the TGA office on 01507 607722.
