We have two ‘Made in Hertfordshire’ Marquees, showcasing Hertfordshire’s finest homemade produce and crafts, as well as Main Drive selling big name brands. Farmers Drive and Horse World are full of necessities and ‘must haves’ for the agricultural and equine shoppers, while the Village Green and the Avenues are a the place to find everything from garden accessories, to craft liqueurs, to beard oils!

The Hertfordshire Agricultural Society are delighted to announce they will be working with local caterers Gusto, to give the Farmers Arms a make over! After the successful debut of it’s new location opposite the Hertfordshire Farmyard in 2018, the eatery will be getting a whole new name, look and country feel.

Serving up breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea inside a rustic environment, the public will now be able to enjoy local produce and ales in a seated marquee, as well as at the many local food stalls around the Showground, offering more seating and undercover space for the public . The Marquee will also be open to traders and competitors from 6am, ensuring everyone on sight gets a good breakfast and a proper coffee.

Gusto are used to catering for large scale events such as Glastonbury and Latitude, so the Show Committee are excited to be working with such a knowledgeable team that will be able to take their ‘Hertfordshire’s finest’ offering to the next level.
