The Norfolk Farm Machinery Club have always been well known for staging practical demonstrations of farm machinery, right from its inception, 75 years ago. These days, with the importance of conserving our soils, cultivation machinery have very much come to the fore, and we have staged a Cultivation Demonstration every two years now for a number of years. Covid restrictions prevented us from staging the event last year as planned, however, this year sees the largest show we have ever staged with the 200 acre site fully booked with both working and static plots showing a very wide range of agricultural machinery, products and services. As the NORMAC Demonstration will just about be the only agricultural show staged in East Anglia this year, we are expecting a record crowd of farmers, contractors and other agricultural machinery specialists to our site, just outside Downham Market, in S.W. Norfolk.
We wouldn’t be able to stage anything like this without the help and assistance of our host, Albanwise Farming Ltd., who have made their land available to us, and for which we are extremely grateful.
It’s a large site and a couple of “busses” will be taking you around if you don’t want to walk! There will be plenty of refreshments available, and for the first time-a Bar!
There’s an amazing amount to see, and if you are NRoSo or BASIS regersted, you can collect points from a number of participating companies.
Most importantly, it is a FREE event, with FREE PARKING all day

It all promises to be a good day, with lots to see. Hopefully harvest will be almost done by then. If you want to come and see a particular machine working, you don’t have to stay all day. You are welcome to come and go. The event starts about 8.30am, and will finish about 4.30pm, or there abouts. So put Wednesday September 8th down in your diaries, and look forward to a really good day out.
The Norfolk Farm Machinery Club is the oldest farm machinery club in the country, having been established in 1946 as a means of educating farmers and operators in farm machinery then coming onto farms just after the war. The same aims are here today. We welcome speakers from all aspects of farm, farm machinery and country life to our evening meetings. Within Norfolk we have seven clubs in our major towns, each organising their own programme of speakers, outings and recreational activities. If you feel you would like to join, look up our web-site www.normac.org.uk
