Well it’s that crazy week again leading up to Malham Show the highlight of the calendar here in Malhamdale, the house is a buzz with baking, handicrafts, show admin, schedules, entries and on the farm sheep are being washed, trimmed and generally pampered.
Malham Show takes place under the shadow of Malham Cove on Bank Holiday Saturday (August 25th for 2012).
My vegetables have been terrible this year so a reduced entry from me, but my homemade lemonade, pickles and chutney are made and ready for judging.
The Wildman Hogroast will be serving Malhamdale Oxford Sandy & Black Pork Sandwiches with crackling, homemade stuffing & apple sauce and if your on the showfield early enough try a Paganum Bacon Buttie!
In the Farmers Market you can buy local cakes, bread, ice cream, cheese and of course charcuterie from Paganum and Yorkshire Chorizo.
Lots to see and do on the showfield all day, first classes start at 9am and main ring attractions from 12 noon. A good show of cattle and sheep is guaranteed along with Heavy Horses and the iconic Malham Show Fell Race.
