It’s always a good time to thank a farmer, but from October 5 to October 11 it’s especially fitting. Ontario Agriculture Week is here again!

To make sure you get the most out of this year’s Agriculture Week we’ve put together a list of the many ways you can celebrate—from taking a virtual farm tour, to taking the family to an apple orchard, to attending one of the many local food festivals happening across the Greenbelt.
