Family Day at Riverdale Farm

Time for more Family Day fun! This event is happening in downtown Toronto, at our farm within the city. Little Boo and I enjoy our visits to Riverdale Farm - it's a great chance to meet the animals and learn about food production.

On February 18th, Riverdale Farm, centrally located in downtown Toronto, is hosting a special day of activities on the farm, including the new and interactive trailer created by  Grain Farmers of Ontario

In the trailer, children can learn about plants with the Seed Survivor video game and play in a corn box with toy versions of the tractors  that are in the field each summer. With the chance to tour the farm, see the animals and get face to face with a few real life farmers, it’s sure to be a fun and agri-cational day!
