Cash and food donations for local food banks had a total cash value of over $11,000!
A big thank you to our sponsors, and volunteers for making the farm tour a success each and every year!
Since 1998 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.
