So we finally made it to the Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial & Food Show after many years of promising ourselves to attend. Dubbed by some as ‘the Caribbean's premier agricultural event, this year was it’s 65th staging.
The three day event featured parish farmers markets with displays of Jamaican agricultural produce - both organic & non organic, areas in which one could find livestock & pets on show, exhibits focused on greenhouse farming, farm products & equipment and a food court stretch. Here's some of what we captured!
