Breakfast on the Farm ~ September 14, 2019

Breakfast on the Farm is sold out. 

Breakfast on the Farm provides a unique opportunity for farmers and non-farming Ontarians to have a conversation about food and farming. It gives guests the chance to visit a real, working farm and the opportunity to have their questions answered by real farmers. Guests attending the September 14 event will...

  • Enjoy a tasty all-Ontario breakfast
  • View dozens of agricultural displays and exhibits showcasing everything from farm animals to tractors to technology
  • Take a wagon ride to the orchard and strawberry patch
  • Meet farmers from across Ontario

About the host family:

Barrie Hill Farms has been in second generation farmer Morris Gervais' family since 1968. His parents, Adrien and Evelyn Gervais, grew tobacco until they transitioned into strawberries in 1977 and continued to diversify into the 1980s with blueberries, raspberries, and asparagus. Morris has continued this tradition of diversification and in 2015 an apple orchard was established. Barrie Hill Farms now offers everything from sweet corn to peas to pumpkins to hardy kiwi and much more!

Interested in volunteering for Breakfast on the Farm?

Breakfast on the Farm wouldn't be possible without a group of amazing volunteers! Outgoing and friendly volunteers are needed to welcome our visitors and set the tone from the moment they arrive at the farm until they have completed breakfast and the tour. There are a number of ways that volunteers can help including assisting with parking & shuttles, serving breakfast, and answering questions about the farm.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to leave a lasting impression with one of our 2000 guests!

Each year, Breakfast on the Farm is made possible by the generosity of dozens of partners and sponsors. Interested in being part of Breakfast on the Farms' success? See our sponsorship package here.
