Plowing Matches have been part of our agricultural history in Ontario for well over a century. In the early days they were sponsored by Agricultural Societies, the first farm groups to be established.
History records show that in 1846, when the first provincial exhibition was held in the city of Toronto, a special feature of the event was a plowing match. It took place on a farm on Young Street in the vicinity of St. Claire Avenue.
