Plough Sunday is a traditional agricultural celebration usually held on the Sunday after Epiphany, the Sunday between 7 January and 13 January.  In days gone by,  this would have been the beginning of the agricultural year, and fell just before the ploughmen returned to work  Today the churches which celebrate this festival often bring a plough into church grounds with prayers for the blessing of the land. Although the nature of farming has changed over the centuries, Plough Sunday is still a great way of generally celebrating farming and the work of farmers and praying for them.
