About

Durham Farm Connections provides agricultural education opportunities for the farm and non-farm communities in Durham Region to ensure the viability of the agriculture sector.

As volunteers who are agricultural producers and/or industry stakeholders, we have a passion and vested interest in providing agriculture education to the residents of Durham Region.

It began in 2006 with the curriculum-based Grade 3 program. Since then, Farm Connections has grown to offer many opportunities for the local community to learn about how Durham Region Farmers help to put food on your dinner plate.

Through initiatives such as our High School Program and Open House, as well as having a presence at County Fairs and Events with our All About…Farming Trailer, Durham Farm Connections provides an unparalleled and exciting agriculture education experience.

All about ...

Egg Farming

  • Local eggs get from our farm to your table in 4 to 7 days.
  • Hens are housed in clean, well-lit, well-ventilated barns and fed a balanced diet of grains, vitamins, minerals and plenty of water.
  • The candling process makes sure the egg shell is clean and without cracks and the egg white is thick and the yolk well centred.
  • Do you know why it is important to keep eggs stored in the refrigerator and in the original carton?
