Ontario Farm Animal Council – Wellington County
John Wilkinson, Minister of Research and Innovation and MPP for Perth-Wellington; John Maaskant
Do you want “the real dirt on farming”? The Ontario Farm Animal Council offers a booklet under the same name, just one of the many creative materials it has developed over the past 20 years to promote agricultural awareness. The council continuously finds innovative ways to tell the story of Ontario’s farmers. Almost 100,000 visitors have accessed its “Virtual Farm Tours” with a click of their computer mouse. People also enjoy the “Faces of Farming” calendar, sold out each year. The non-profit education organization is a leader in developing resources and participating in events that help educate and raise awareness of Ontario’s agri-food sector.
