Dufferin Farm Tour

Our video premiere is Saturday October 2nd at 7pm! Go here to watch: dufferinfarmtour.com/watch
We are continuing our 20+ year tradition of bringing Dufferin Farms to you…unfortunately not as a live experience, but as a video that goes deep behind the scenes of farming to show you real people, real farms and and what it takes 365 days a year. We hope next year we will be able to open our doors and put our boots on to show you around some of our host farms. Please join us and show your support to our agricultural community who bring you great products every day of the year.
Here are some advance clips of what you will see in this years video:

Also join us for a food drive for local food banks on October 2nd from 9am to 3pm at Sobeys in Orangeville or at Foodland in Shelburne.

If you missed our 2020 video you can watch now right here.

Farm Tour Background:

Since 1999 Dufferin farmers have opened their doors for one day in the fall to show people how farming really happens.
Each year a different section of the county is chosen and the the tour takes visitors to several different farms, making each tour a totally unique experience.

The tour is a self-guided tour and is open to the public. The host farms offer a glimpse of the diversity of agriculture in the area. Our farmers are excited to share their farming knowledge and the day to day operation and challenges of farming.  There will be many animals to see, farm-related activities, commodity displays, local produce to purchase. You will end your day with an appreciation for local farming and the commitment of the farm families. Admission is a non-perishable food donation or cash for the Local Food Bank.

Tips for a successful farm tour experience:

  • Dress appropriately, tour goes shine or rain
  • Bring cash and a cooler for on farm produce purchases
  • Plan your route (there is a recommended route on the passport map)
  • There is lots to see and do – give yourself lots of time if you want to visit every farm

You are encouraged to eat local, eat healthy and support farmers.
