We'll be supporting and promoting Local Food Month in a couple of ways. Stay tuned for more information!
First off, as a kick-off on Sunday, August 30 to set the stage for Local Food Month, we'll be taking part in our township's first Farms, Fields and Food Tour. There's a variety of stops with many things to see and do all featuring ties to our rural community. With a number of great options including celebrating David Fife's contribution to wheat and advancements in Canadian agriculture to eating fresh picked corn, we think it's going to be a great day!.
We'll also have a craft table where everyone is welcome to make a traditional corn husk dolls. There are a few more surprises in store too including a sensory table (filled with corn kernels of course!) for kids to dig and drive through. People are also welcome to meet some of our pure-bred Simmental beef cattle herd too. We have a new calf named Clover who has to be bottle-fed (it's a long story) and she'd love to meet you all!
We hope you're able to take the opportunity to explore the Farms, Fields and Food of Otonabee-South Monaghan Township on Sunday. We'd love to see you!
