Weald of Kent Prize Giving

One of the final highlights in the farming calendar each year here in Kent is the prize giving for the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match and Kent Hop and Beer competitions, which all takes place in November at Marden Cricket and Hockey Club.

Hops are particularly synonymous with Kent and Sussex and the 2021 competition saw around 80 hop samples from growers across the county,  which filled the room with their incredible and very distinctive aroma.

Gullands’ Partner Catherine Lloyd commented:  “We were delighted to support the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association both in our attendance at the ploughing match last September and again in November,  when the winners received their well-deserved trophies. It is always a very hospitable evening and the chance to chat to our friends in the farming community.  We are looking forward to the 2022 match and again supporting the rural community. ”

All profits raised by the Weald of Kent Ploughing Match Association goes to charities in the Weald of Kent, which support the rural community.  More details about the event and competitions can be found at
