The Great Canadian Farm Tour: Season 1


40,000 students, 2,500 teachers, over 300 contest entries and 11 virtual farm tours.

The numbers were staggering for the inaugural year of the Great Canadian Farm Tour. 

Throughout the month of March, we traveled coast-to-coast to visit farms in each province alongside our provincial member organizations. Students were able to LEARN about Canada’s exciting agriculture and food story, CONNECT and interact virtually with real farmers, and EXPERIENCE what it’s like on farms across the country.

If you missed it, don’t worry! We’ve created an online resource set that includes extension activities, and every tour in English and French!
