Welcome to our site.  Information regarding the Dounby Show, Ploughing Match or Farmers Ball will be added when the information is available.

The Orkney West Mainland Agricultural Society was originally formed for the purpose of holding a Ploughing Match in 1859.  It was not until 1891 that the first Dounby Show was held.  The show has grown and developed and is now held annually in our own Showpark in Dounby, attracting nearly 6000 spectators in recent years.  In October 2005, the Society became a Limited Company. 

The Society also holds an Annual Ploughing Match, which at the present time is very well supported.

Trophies from both events are presented at the Annual Farmers Ball and Presentation of Prizes, which is held at the end of November or begining of December.
