Wensleydale Show and Kilnsey Show 2023

2023 was a totally new start for the Tupgill Estate as we really embraced the “One Estate Approach”

We have never in 50 years ever had a presence locally at the best shows in town and all our staff really pulled together to make sure this was a special day for us all and existing or potential customers onto the estate.

None of this could have happened without the assistance on the day and before the day shout out to everyone that has gone the extra mile … Without your help, this couldn’t have been possible
