The 2016 Lanark County Plowing Match will include an exciting 200th Anniversary component, the Settlers Heritage Day, a family oriented, entertaining celebration of the first settlers to the area, their lives and their contribution to the founding and development of this community, and the agriculture farm sector.

All ages of the family will enjoy a fun, interactive tour of our area’s 200 Anniversary, our history and our farm community. Come for the real-maple-syrup pancake breakfast from 7:00 to 9:00am, and stay on to enjoy the many activities of the annual Plowing Match, farm displays, historical and antique exhibits, family history research assistance, fence building, sheep shearing, blacksmithing, local entertainers, and presentation ceremony for the Legacy Farm anniversary certificates.  For the children there will also be wagon rides, the Paddling Puppeteer, miniature animal farm, Story Corner, First Nations Drumming, colouring table, and other play activities.

This event will take place at the Cameron family property, 2677 Scotch Line, in Tay Valley Township, five minutes south-west of Perth on Highway #10, from 9:00am to 4:00pm.
