About Us

Mission: The Ilderton Agricultural Society is committed to celebrating our community, our achievements in agriculture and creative arts, and our rural lifestyle.

The IAS consists of a membership of about ~300 and is managed by an elected board of sixteen directors. The Ilderton Fair is entirely run by volunteers that form committees for the different competitions and events.

  • holding agricultural exhibitions featuring competitions for which prizes may be awarded
  • promoting the conservation of natural resources
