Hastings County Farm Show and Plowing Match 2012

The Historical Society worked together with the Community Archives to put on a new exhibit for the 24th annual event, hosted this year by Donnandale Farms near Stirling.  The new exhibit featured mementoes from the 1961 international plowing match held just north of Belleville and a selection of pictures taken by the Intelligencer staff at the 1986 international plowing match which was also held in Stirling.  

We would like to express our appreciation to:

1. The County of Hastings for providing us with space in their tent;

2. All the volunteers that worked hard to make up the exhibits and staff the booth; and,

3. All the people that dropped by and shared their memories with us.

Please enjoy these five albums of the 2012 plowing match.  Most of the photographs were taken by Bobby-Jo Morris, who donated them to the Society for inclusion in the Archives.  High resolution copies are available on request contact us here. The full collection can be viewed by visiting us at the Heritage Centre in Cannifton.
