The Durham Agricultural Advisory Committee (DAAC) will be hosting a virtual farm tour, highlighting the full growing season of a local potato farm. From planting to growing the crop, harvesting, storing and distributing the potatoes. This year’s tour will showcase the full range of activities at Smalley Produce, a family-run farm and business since 1946.
The event will be live-streamed, on September 28th, from 1 to 2 p.m., at durham.ca/DAACFarmTour.
DAAC has hosted an annual farm tour, for the past 18 years, to government members and key stakeholders, on the importance of farming in Durham Region. Participants gain an understanding of agricultural operations, including the opportunities and challenges of the agricultural community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s tour will be virtual.
