Event Description

The planning committee has put together another great line-up of speakers in a new, single day format featuring programs for crop, sheep, dairy, organic and the backyard farmers. A keynote address by Michael Thiele will focus on New Directions in Agriculture. Kim Clarke will lead an intensive three-hour morning workshop for a limited number of farms interested in agritourism or looking to enhance products and experiences already offer on your farm. Space is limited for Kim’s workshop, register online to ensure you get a seat!

Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) will again find serveral sessions offering CEU credits.

For over 40 years this annual event for farmers by farmers has been made possible through the generous support of our many on-going sponsors and exhibitors. This year is no exception. Following the education sessions plan on joining fellow farmers, presenters, exhibitors, and sponsors for a complimentary mix and mingle reception to celebrate our achievements and to connect with others.

Cost at the door remains the same as on-line.

Regular $35
Students $20 (you may be asked to show school ID at the door)

Includes hot lunch, parking, complimentary reception, and a full-day of educational and informative sessions!

Agritourism Workshop (9am to noon) $35 (includes hot lunch, parking, and option to stay for afternoon COAC sessions)





Look forward to seeing you at the end of February in Barrie!
