Despite the weather the Mountain Goat team enjoyed a day at the largest county show in Cumbria

It was a rather windy and wet morning on Thursday September 12 when the Mountain Goat team arrived at the Westmorland County Show ground in Crooklands alongside the team from Lindeth Howe.

Thousands flocked to the show field for a day of exciting agriculture activities and to see local businesses showcase their specialities.

Laden with flapjacks, brownies, shortbread and of course Mountain Goat's own branded mint cake the team hid from the elements in the gazebos.

The show itself was a huge success, with the Mountain Goat and Lindeth Howe competition being entered by hundreds of people. The prize? Dinner for four at the Lindeth Howe's double AA rosette restaurant and four seats on a Winter tour with Mountain Goat. 


The show was full of countryside delights, from prize winning cockerels, pigs and sheep, to huge farming machinery which made the Mountain Goat Mercedes Sprtiner seem small.

People from all over wandered around the waterlogged fields to explore the best of country life, some taking shelter in the Mountain Goat gazebo.

Liz Chegwin, the marketing manager for Mountain Goat and one of the Westmorland Show team members, said: "We had a great time at the Westmorland County Show this year, where we met lots of customers, both new and old.

"While the weather wasn't the best we had a great time hearing about old Mountain Goat stories from as far back as the 70's, along with eating far too much cake."
