Hadleigh Farmers Club was established in December 1839 “to promote the cause of agriculture by the discussion of subjects, and disseminating of information relative to its practice”.
The Hadleigh Farmers’ Agricultural Association (HFAA) organises members’ events on a monthly basis. The majority of events are open evening talks which touch on many aspects of farming life. There are also larger scale activities such as clay pigeon shooting and golf days which are always popular with members.
The events are open to all members and their guests. The programme covers a good mixture of educational and entertaining subjects to appeal across the membership base. Because the evenings regularly attract around 50 attendees, they give members the opportunity to meet up and socialise. The majority of evening talks are held at the Hadleigh Cricket Club which offers a licensed bar for refreshments.
Membership to the Hadleigh Farmers’ Agricultural Association (HFAA) is open to all, whether or not you have a connection to the farming world. Membership applications are reviewed by the committee at meetings in January, April and September and approved by the commitee prior to acceptance after which payment will be requested.
MEMBERSHIP FOR 2022 IS NOW CLOSED AND WILL RE-OPEN AFTER THE SHOW FOR APPLICATIONS TO BE REVIEWED IN SEPTEMBER
