Breakfast on the Farm

A first for Canada, coordinated by Farm and Food Care Ontario (@FarmFoodCare). It was a great morning and I made a point of visiting Ontario Veal (@OntarioVeal) to learn more about how veal can be raised comfortably in barns like the one pictured below. The young farmers and agri-staff I met really care about animal comfort.

I thought it was well attended, and I particularly enjoyed seeing the dairy cows so comfortable on a hot summer day. Breakfast on the Farm 2013 was hosted on Heritage Hill Farms, in New Dundee, Ontario. Let’s hope this becomes an annual event – a great way for eaters to learn about how their food is produced.
