The self-guided tour features nine sites including stops at four family farms. Health and safety protocols have been updated to allow for physical distancing and contact tracing through online registration.

Kawartha Farmfest is an opportunity for people to engage with area agricultural producers, and retailers in a fun, family friendly and safe way. It’s a chance for people to experience the fall harvest first hand while learning about the farms in the community. The participating host farms are graciously opening their doors to provide tours and answer questions about their operation. Kawartha Farmfest is both a celebration of agriculture and brings the community together in a hands-on experiential way.

“Supporting our agricultural partners has always been a priority and now more than ever, people are looking for ways to learn more about local food and farming,” said Kelly Maloney, Economic Development Officer – Agriculture. “Public Health is our priority and as such, protocols have been adopted to limit the number of people at each site and allow for contact tracing.”

Organicfest at O’Brienview Organic Farm – cows, ducks, chickens, pigs, vegetables, honey, lamb
