The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has played a leading role in the development of agriculture and the rural economy in Wales for over a century since its formation in 1904. Today our work includes providing support for business, social welfare and education in rural communities, and the organisation and staging of our ever-popular Society events; the Spring Festival, the Summer Show and the Winter Fair.
The society’s charitable objectives are:
- to promote sustainable agriculture, horticulture, forestry, conservation and the environment and in particular in Wales;
- to encourage and promote agricultural science, research and education in particular in relation to food, farming and the countryside;
- to promote the improvement of livestock, the welfare of animals and the prevention and eradication of diseases in animals useful to man;
- to hold demonstrations of modern agricultural methods, technology and processes;
- to hold shows for the exhibition of livestock, poultry, farm and horticultural produce and forestry, and for the demonstration of agricultural methods, machinery and modern technology and hold events of an ancillary nature;
- to promote and advance for the benefit and education of the public the conservation protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment; and
- to promote rural arts, culture and heritage.
