Turf Growers Association plan show for J&B Farnaby farm on 28-29 June

The Turf Growers Association (TGA) have announced that the hosts of the Turf Show 2011 will be J&B Farnaby.

The 200ha turf farm, run by Jeff and Barbara Farnaby and their son Paul, will host the show on 28-29 of June 2011 just off the A1 at Scotch Corner, North Yorkshire.

The show focuses on all aspects of turf production and will showcase the latest machinery and product innovation and is expected to attract a large number of growers both from the UK and from abroad.

TGA chief executive Tim Mudge said: "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."

Full details will be available shortly from the show website at www.turfshow.co.uk or from the TGA office on 01507 607722.
