Grade 3 Program

This fantastic event, now in its 13th year, is organized and hosted by the dedicated volunteers of the agriculture and education communities.

Each year, over 1000 students rotate through 8 different agriculture-themed stations that include live animal displays and hands-on demonstrations by local farmers. This year’s stations include:

  • Beef CattleGrade 3 Event
  • Dairy Cattle
  • Pigs
  • Cider
  • Egg Production
  • Crops
  • Land Stewardship
  • Vegetable

This program aligns well with the Science, Health and Social Studies Curriculum for Grade 3 students and you will wish you were still in Grade 3!

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?
