2013 Farm Tour

On September 12, 2013 the Durham Agricultural Advisory Committee (DAAC) hosted its 11th annual farm tour in the Township of Brock, at Shadyway Farms Ltd. This year, the farm tour highlighted the theme of "The Future of Agriculture".

The annual Farm Tour provides participants with the opportunity to get a first-hand look at the future of Durham's vital agricultural industry while hearing perspectives from those directly involved in the Region's agricultural industry through demonstrations, trade show displays and one-on-one discussions. This year's Tour included: crop displays; field demonstrations; trade show displays; a tour of a dairy barn; as well as a mock cattle judging session.

DAAC is commended for its continued efforts in advancing knowledge of key stakeholders and decision-makers about the agricultural industry in Durham and the challenges and opportunities being faced through its annual farm tour. The Tour continues to be a valuable element of the Council approved Work Plan for DAAC.
