The Society was formed in 1784. In 1985 it became a registered charity for the "Improvement and Encouragement of Agriculture, particularly in the County of Pembrokeshire". Over the years the Society has thrived in various forms and various locations in Pembrokeshire until 1959 when it found its ideal site at the County Showground, where it remains today.
In 2015 the Society followed the route taken by the majority of agricultural societies to form a Company Limited by Guarantee and re-register as a charity, whose primary objective is to "promote, advance and improve for the benefit of the public, agriculture, horticulture and rural crafts and skills in all their branches".
The Society was formed as a limited company on July 14, 2014, and achieved charity status as the new company on February 17, 2015.
The Board of Directors of PAS Ltd are also its charity trustees enabling the Society to be compliant with both company and charitable law.
The day to day running of the Society is delegated to the Society's paid staff and managed by the Chief Executive. The Chief Executive reports to the Board of Directors which is responsible and accountable for the affairs and finances of the Limited Company that is the Society.
The Show Council acts in an advisory and consultative capacity, in all matters relating to the organisation's flagship event - the three-day Pembrokeshire County Show. The Council comprises of up to 50 elected members, Directors of PAS Ltd, the President and President-Elect.
