This year’s Lincolnshire Harvest Festival will be held on Sunday 21 October at Lincoln Cathedral at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend – no invitation is necessary, so please come along, bring your family and friends and enjoy our annual event.
Organised by the farming community, the service celebrates everything that is great about Lincolnshire’s farming and horticulture industries. Produce, donated by Lincolnshire’s farmers and growers, is proudly displayed in the nave.
Each NFU branch brings an offering to represent the county’s produce and members process to the alter as part of the service.
A cup of tea and a slice of Lincolnshire plum loaf is offered to everyone after the service, to make the event a companionable and happy Sunday afternoon.
This year's collection, along with produce donated for the display and for the procession of offerings, will be given to local charity including the Nomad Trust, which helps the homeless and those in need.
The NFU and partners the CLA, RABI, LRSN and Lincs YFC organise the service, which marks the end of one farming year and the beginning of the next and gives us the opportunity to say thank you for the great gifts of food, family, community and our fantastic farming industry.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday 21 October to celebrate in the wonderful setting of Lincoln Cathedral.
