Over 35 farms across the province are showing off their inner workings on Sunday, September 19 for Manitoba’s first Open Farm Day.

The public is invited out to learn more about farm life and the business of farming.

“Entire families will be able to learn about agriculture, see demonstrations, take walking tours, buy local products, enjoy some recreational activities and gain some real hands-on experience on the farm,” said Agriculture Minister Stan Struthers in a release.

In Steinbach, Supper from the Field at the Mennonite Heritage Village livery barn will be a celebration of local foods prepared by a team of chefs. Supper begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are available at (204) 392-7268 and are $15 for adults and $10 for children 10 years and under.
