Keen livestock breeders tend to focus on the judging rings at agricultural shows, but no summer event is complete without food, drink and trade stands.
And the Scottish Agricultural Show is no different.
The Courier and The Press and Journal have partnered with the Royal Highland Show and sponsors EQ Accountants to present Scotland’s first ever online show over the weekend of July 3-4.
Visitors to the dedicated website are invited to visit the food and drink tents, where demonstrations will showcase the best produce Scotland has to offer .
The beer tent, sponsored by 71 Brewing, will highlight top beers and in the drinks tent, sponsored by Bon Accord, visitors can find out more about different Scottish producers – from whisky and gin to soft drinks, wine and much more.
The food tent, sponsored by Red Poppy, is not to be missed and businesses will also show off their wares in the trade stands section, sponsored by Netherton Tractors, while Stewart’s Resort sponsors the leisure area.
There’s still time to enter the baking competition, sponsored by Mackays.
Just create a baked item using a Mackays product of your choice, upload a photo and tell us a bit about it for the chance to win a special hamper.
There is a vintage farm machinery competition, sponsored by Balgownie, and the chance for four-legged friends to shine in the dog photo competition sponsored by Angus Timber Cabins.
To be in with a chance of winning Pets at Home vouchers, all you need to do is upload a photo of a pet to our website and tell us why they are a winner.
For the vintage farm machinery competition, all that’s required is a photo of your machine looking its best, then the public will vote for their favourite.
Voting for the three competitions will take place from when entries close at 5pm on June 26 up until 2pm on show day.
Meanwhile, entries for livestock close on Friday.
Each entry requires a video to be uploaded along with a video and a completed online entry form.
Each entry requires a £5 donation in support of the Royal Highland Education Trust charity.
