Springtime Live was a huge success today attracting 4,000 visitors to the Great Yorkshire Showground to see the very best of food, farming and countryside.

There were farm animals including pigs, goats and sheep, brought by local farmers including Ian's Mobile Farm and the Yorkshire Lamb Orphanage.
Peppa Pig and Peter Rabbit also entertained the youngsters while Diggerland was at the event for the first time.

Ripon Farm Services donated mini tractors which youngsters could ride around an indoor circuit, there were also cookery workshops and a climbing wall as well as alpacas, reptiles, Ferretworld's Roadshow, Rare Breeds Survival Trust and forest crafts.

Springtime Live raises funds for the Yorkshire Agricultural Society to help support farming and the countryside.
