Hello chefs-to-be, meet your food

We’ve got another farm tour coming up this week with young culinary students, this time from Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough.

The focus this time will be on chicken production and apple farming.

This tour is the last in a series that AGCare and the Ontario Farm Animal Council (OFAC) have been running for the past couple of years.

Our aim is to help up and coming young chefs understand where their food comes from – and the care and work that has gone into growing it and getting it into their kitchens.

It also lets them meet farmers face to face and ask any questions they might have about things they’ve heard, read or always wondered about.

Here are some pictures of where we have been this year:
