Biddenden Tractorfest is organised by a team of volunteers and the Kent County Agricultural Society (registered charity no: 1001191), to raise money to support the future of agriculture in Kent and to support clubs, amenities and charities within the local area.

We are proud to announce that we have been able to support the local associations, clubs, groups and charities listed below with donations totalling over £13,000.

Many of these, and others, were also supported with free or discounted stands at Biddenden Tractorfest 2023, which they were able to use to generate additional funds and awareness. (Applications for these stands are now open here).

We have also donated an additional £12,500 towards the Kent County Agricultural Society’s own charitable activities (more information at www.kcas.org.uk ).

In addition to the above, we are delighted to have sponsored the transport for three local Primary Schools – John Mayne Primary School in Biddenden, Smarden Primary School and Sandhurst Primary School – to attend this year’s Living Land (a free one-day event at the Kent Show Ground open to Kent primary school children in years 3 and 4 aimed to educate children in areas of farming, agriculture, the countryside, and healthy eating).
