Manitoba farms will open their gates to the public on Sunday in the fourth annual Open Farm Day.
The public will have an opportunity to get a first-hand look at agriculture by touring the province’s many farms to get a behind-the-scenes look at how they operate.
“The success of this event year over year shows the pride that Manitoba farmers take in their work and the role they play in our rural communities and the agricultural industry,” said Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives Minister Ron Kostyshyn. “With many things to do and types of farms to visit, there is truly something for everyone to learn and explore on Open Farm Day.”
More than 60 farms are registered this year, where visitors will meet local producers, learn about modern farming operations and participate in fun activities and demonstrations.
For the first time, geocachers can also search for caches located at several participating farms.
