Good in Every Grain

The Roots of Our Province #Canada150

"Today, 28,000 families farm barley, corn, oats, soybeans, and wheat across Ontario thanks to those who planted our first seeds 150 years ago.

Generations later, these family legacies are thriving as grains are farmed sustainably to keep our farmlands healthy and productive for another 150 years!

As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, let’s also celebrate our Ontario farming heritage and the families who have worked this land for generations."
