Farm tours, like many events, have gone virtual this year.

In place of their annual event, Dufferin Farm Tour created a great video showcasing 11 different farm businesses across Dufferin County, and hosted a viewing party on their original tour date. They have since received a 2020 Award of Distinction for the video from the Canada Shorts Film Festival!

“Of course we’d rather have the doors open, hands-on, with people coming to the farm,” shares Jeanette McFarlane, Dufferin Farm Tour committee member, “but in a year where we couldn’t do that, we’ve been able to actually expand our reach with this video, deliver on all of our mandates, and we actually found a lot of success.”
