Dufferin Farm Tour

We’re back….back in person for our 2022 tour! We’re working hard to put together an amazing group of host farms. Be sure to follow us on social media to stay up to date on our plans. We plan to open registration on August 15 and a link will be posted here, stay tuned.
This year we are encouraging monetary donations prior to the tour:
Donations can still be brought on tour day to support local food banks – Orangeville, Grand Valley and Shelburne (Shepherd’s Cupboard).
Our 2021 and 2020 tours were virtual and they can be watched anytime:

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

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.
