Father and son had busy day at show
2:40pm Monday 10th September 2012 in News
IT was a family affair at the show with farmer Adam Henson and his father Joe both in attendance.
The BBC Countryfile presenter was signing copies of his book Adam’s Farm: My Life on the Land and drew the crowds with a selection of small animals from his Guiting Power farm park.
Chicks, rabbits and ducks kept the children entertained in what was a small version of the farm park’s new touch barn, near the Grand Arena.
His father Joe, rare breed and farming advocate who founded the popular Cotswold attraction, was also at the show to launch a new cheese.
Adam said it was the first time they had been at the show for a couple of years.
“It’s amazing how much work going into a one-day show,” he said.
“It’s vibrant. There’s a real buzz about the place.”
Father and son both did a stint in the Grand Arena – Joe introduced equestrian performer Jean-Francois Pignon while his son Adam presented the grand parade of livestock.
The Cotswold Farm Park is staying open until Christmas Eve this year due to popular demand.
