Summer is here. Time to visit a farm.
Farms are all about growing great food. This time of year, a farm is a busy place as the many fruits mature on trees and vines. Farmers work with Mother Nature to bring the best to you.
Take some time to explore the farms in your area or go for a drive and find some new ones. Many on-farm markets are open year round, depending on the products they produce and offer. Click on the ‘Find a Farm’ button and explore farms nearby or farms that offer unique foods to try. Grab some sunscreen and your hat and get out in the countryside. Explore rural Ontario and the many farmers who live there. It is always a great opportunity for some fresh air, fresh experiences and lots of fun.
