Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

I want to personally thank all the Farmers in Ontario for doing their part in making this place a better spot to live and for producing great safe food. You could say that due to the diversity of agriculture in Ontario, we are our own eco-system. With the diverse crop rotation, various tillage methods, variety of livestock (& poultry) and multiple types of crops grown for horticulture, Ontario has a natural ability to produce natural wholesome food products and produce.
I think the best way that everyone can really thank Ontario Farmers is to ask for and purchase Ontario Grown produce. Support Foodland Ontario and Homegrown Ontario just to name two. Support your local Farmers also by showing your support personally when you see them (say thank you, shake their hand,... it's up to you)!
Thank you for making this place the way it is.
Ontario food & Ontario Farmers. Happy Earth Day.
