Farmstart Tour

farmstarttour

Join us for a tour of the Earth to Table Farm - a 40-hectare farm, located just 10 minutes from the Mustard Seed Co-op. It is an agricultural resource centre and farm incubator, leased to eight new organic farms, including Honest Field Farms, Dunbar Organic Farm, Close to Home Farm, and Weathervane Farms, all of which are in their first five years of operation. The farm provides a unique opportunity to dive into the local food scene and tour a startlingly different type of farm.  

Enjoy a guided tour of the orchard, barn and farms, and talk with new farmers about the joys and challenges of farming in the greater Hamilton area. 

A picnic lunch option is available - be sure to select what you'd like when you're purchasing your ticket. Lunch will include a wrap made with ingredients from the FarmStart farms, local fruit, iced tea, and a dessert. Please indicate whether you'd prefer a vegetarian or non-vegetarian wrap.
 
Hosted by Honest Field Farms, in partnership with the Mustard Seed Co-op Education Committee.
