Moate to partner with NVS for 180th Show

The National Vegetable Society (NVS) has some 2000 members.  We are a mix of abilities and ages and include those who grow for the table as well those whose passion is growing “for show”. We thrive on helping growers produce better quality vegetables and by sharing tips and advice and encourage and support those new to vegetable growing.
We would like to thank Moate Agricultural Show Society for hosting our 2023 Irish Championships. It will be our great honour to stage the inaugural Irish NVS Championships as part of their 180th show. This will be a very prestigious competition showcasing the best quality of vegetables grown in Ireland.

Visitors to the Vegetable Tent on Sunday August 27th will be able to enjoy the Irish Championships, where all the exhibits are grown by NVS members, as well as the Moate Vegetable Show which is open to all exhibitors.

These two shows come together as one to showcase beautifully grown vegetables. Even those without green fingers will love what they see. Members of the NVS will be on hand to answer any vegetable growing queries. We are often asked how to grow vegetables ‘so big’ or what does the judge look for? The NVS is not about growing big vegetables, although some are impressively large, we are all about growing great quality vegetables. Developing vegetable growing skills is well within the grasp of anyone. There are often simple ways to grow things better and most growers relish the delight of serving up a dish of beautiful home-grown produce.

NVS members receive quarterly issues of ‘Simply Vegetables’ magazine packed full of information and advice. Members can also access information on growing vegetables on our website and benefit from discounted seeds and sundries from our approved horticultural suppliers and seed merchants.

We very much look forward to welcoming you all to the Moate Show on August 27th which will be a very proud day for the NVS in Ireland.
