It's been three years since we last caught up with A. L. Wilkinson Contract Farming. Gareth and Alec reminisce about the last visit, what machinery is still on the go and how farming has changed in the last few years.
On Saturday the 1st of October, GRASSMEN will be attending Ballyboy tractor dyno day to help raise funds to rebuild our local community hall and also support two charities that are close to the hearts of the local community, The Ashling Murphy memorial Fund and Offaly Down Syndrome.

Donkeycam: Tractor Run In Memory Of Alexander Sweeney
Tonight's video is a follow up to a video from a couple of weeks ago when Donkey spoke to Jason Sweeney about a tractor run he was organizing in memory of his son Alexander who has sadly passed away. The event was organized to raise money for the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice. Alexander was a big fan of blue tractors so we brought our three blue girls along on the day to show our support. Check it out.
