“Tractor Day”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I went to A Day in the Country near Banbury for a Tractor Day whic was bought for me as a birthday present. I arrived at 09:30 as requested and was treated to a warm welcome by the staff and had a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. There were eight of us participating in the event and we were split into groups of two, there being four instructors. We cultivated using a Case tractor, then poughed using a good old fashioned grey "Fergie" wihch was very theraputic. Then we had to wait a long time to get on the JCB fork lift truck and then onto another Case tractor with a trailer to go around a slalom and then reverse into a coned area. The day was well organised but the waiting time for the JCB could have been better managed somehow. I didn't pay but I thought that it was good value for money.
