– On August 26, 2023, Farm & Food Care Ontario (FFCO) and local farmers and volunteers at Ripplebrook Farm will host Breakfast on the Farm. A $5 registration fee for guests will be refunded upon their arrival, making the event free of charge for all visitors.
About Breakfast on the Farm:
This family-friendly event provides a unique opportunity for farmers and non‐farming Ontarians to have a conversation about food and farming. It gives visitors a chance to visit real, working farms, provides a showcase for agriculture and allows non-farmers to have their questions answered by real farmers.
After being treated to an all-Ontario breakfast, visitors can tour a dairy farm and enjoy interactive stops around the farm, including displays, activities and exhibits showcasing other types of Ontario farms. Ontario farmers will be on hand to answer guests’ questions about food and farming.
Since 2013, farm families across Ontario have opened their farms to host Breakfast on the Farm events. These popular experiences have attracted thousands of urban and suburban visitors to local farms across the province. For the past two years, FFCO hosted drive-through and walkthrough events with local fairs as host locations to meet COVID-19 safety guidelines. For 2023’s events, FFCO is returning to the on-farm format.
Breakfast from the Farm is made possible with host Ripplebrook Farm (The MacLean Family) and the support of local agri-businesses and organizations.
Harm farm: Ripplebrook Farm is home to 280 animals and a lot of heart. Their herd of 130 milking cows is milked three times daily in a modern free-stall dairy barn. The farm is also home to seven show-winning quarter horses. Crops on the farm are grown on over 900 acres of land and include alfalfa, barley, wheat, corn and soybeans.
The MacLean family is looking forward to opening their farm gates to provide an opportunity for you to chat with farmers and take a tour of their farm.
