Dufferin Farm Tour

With the ongoing uncertainty with the global pandemic the tour committee has decided to do a video again in 2021. If you missed our 2020 video you can watch now right here.

We’re excited to take on a project such as this to continue to showcase Dufferin Farms; with seasonal footage and farm background that can’t always be shared with an in-person tour. We hope to return to the in-person format in 2022.

Stay turned to this site or to our social media!

A big thank you to our sponsors, and volunteers for making the farm tour a success each and every year!

Farm Tour Background:

Since the year 2000 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.
