Farm Tours and Tour Listing (see map below)

A farm tour provides the opportunity to raise awareness of the role of agriculture and food production in our daily lives.

Agriculture is a business that affects all of us within our communities. During the course of a tour students can begin to understand the multifaceted role of a farmer-in the stewardship of the land and the farm, in the care and well being of the livestock, in the machinery and technology and in the interactive role with the community.

Many farms throughout BC offer tours of their facilities. To find a tour near you, locate your region on the map, then choose that region from the pull-down menu at the top of the page, under Farm Tours.
