The County Show season’s beginning and we couldn’t be happier. We get the opportunity to meet many of you and your four-legged friends and hear first-hand (and often see!) how pets are enjoying our 100% natural pet food. It seems rather apt that Forthglade’s County Show Tour should kick-off in our own home County in Devon!
Over 90,000 visitors are expected at the Devon County Show this weekend, enjoying some of the best livestock on show, tasting fabulous local food and drink, experiencing country life and enjoying masses of entertainment. Of course with our delicious dog food to sample and the wonderful dog shows – it’s a great day out for our canine companions too!
This is the 122nd Devon County Show, with the first being held in 1872! Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex will be visiting and the show will feature competitions between exhibitors of dozens of different breeds of dozens of different species; from livestock to heavy horses, and rabbits to donkeys. The aim, unchanged since the beginnings of pedigree breeding in the 18th-century, is to produce the animal that best displays the physical traits that define its breed.
County shows are fantastic family-friendly events. For more information on the Devon show visit www.Devoncountyshow.co.uk and if you attend, be sure to visit us at the Forthglade stand.
We’ll be showing our full range of delicious natural foods, as well as sharing details on our new ranges, including our new cold pressed natural dry dog food. Many meals from our ranges will be available to buy too. We will also be raising funds for our 2017 leading charity Guide Dogs for the Blind.
