An exhibition will be held in a Norfolk town to celebrate 75 years of farming in the region.
Discover Downham will be putting on an event named Plough to Plate that will celebrate Downham Market's agricultural history.
The free event, which will be held at the old fire station from Thursday, September 19 to Sunday, September 22, will have educational displays of pictures, objects and food products.
Peter Thorpe, the event organiser, said: "The display is based on a simple idea of bringing the workings of the countryside into the town.
"The educational value of learning how our basic supplies are grown and produced for the shop shelf will help give a better understanding of how our food gets to our dinner plate."
