Since 2014, farm families have generously opened their farm gates to thousands of Ontarians for Breakfast on the Farm. This year, we’re doing things a little differently.
NEW in 2021! Join us on Sunday, July 18 for a DRIVE-THRU Breakfast from the Farm!
This contactless, family-friendly event will give visitors a glimpse of what farming is all about from the comfort of your own vehicle! Tickets, limited to one per vehicle, must be purchased online and include:
- “Breakfast in a Bag” valued at $50 with all the ingredients needed to prepare a tasty, all-Ontario breakfast at home. Pancake mix, eggs, maple syrup, milk, butter, mushrooms, greenhouse tomatoes and more! (Contactless pick-up)
- Access to five virtual tours of Ottawa-area farms happening July 12-17
- Drive-thru tour of agricultural displays, including farm animals and equipment.
Don’t forget to register for your ticket! There will be no on-site sales for the safety of our volunteers and guests.
Check out our past Breakfast on the Farm events. We look forward to hosting you in person and on the farm once again!

Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Please aim to arrive no more than 5 minutes early. Entry is only allowed at the specified time indicated on your ticket.
What if I arrive late?
Not to worry, all tickets will be honoured. There may be a wait to fit you into the queue.
Please note, missed dates will not be refunded.
No. For the safety of all guests and our volunteers, you will not be permitted to exit your vehicle.
Since 2014, Breakfast on the Farm has included a delicious, all-Ontario breakfast served right on the farm. This year, with the safety of our guests in mind, we decided to do things a little differently.
Breakfast in a Bag will include many of the ingredients needed to prepare a tasty breakfast for a family of 4. With the generous support of our partners, the bags will include food items like eggs, pancake mix, maple syrup, milk, butter and more!
The bags will also include activities for kids and resources with information about how food is grown and produced here in Ontario.
To ensure to safety of our volunteers and other guests and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we strongly encourage any ticket holders experiencing symptoms to share their ticket with friends or family and stay home.
To ensure to safety of our guests and volunteers, we have a number of safety measures in place.
In 2021, FFCO changed the format of this event to be drive-thru only and tickets will be available at staggered arrival times to limit the number of guests on-site at any given time. In addition, both registration and the “Breakfast in a Bag” pick-up will be contactless for guests. We’ve also added virtual programming throughout Local Food Week (June 7-13) to ensure a fun, positive learning experience in this new format.
You’ll notice that our volunteers are equipped with personal protective equipment, including mandatory masks, and will be physically distancing throughout the event. Volunteers will be screened for COVID-19 on arrival. Volunteers with suspected symptoms or other risk factors will be asked to stay home. Extra sanitization practices will be followed at registration and “Breakfast in a Bag” pick up.
Our first priority is to protect the safety of our guests and volunteers. If the Ontario province-wide lockdown is extended to or past June 13, 2021, the event will be rescheduled for July 18, 2021. Please check this page, your email, or Farm & Food Care Ontario’s social media pages for updates.
If the Ottawa region is in one of the coloured zones, the event can proceed as planned as it is drive-thru only.
There are no refunds, exchanges or credits towards future purchases. Tickets are transferrable though, so share them with friends or family if you are unable to attend.
The event is rain or shine. Tickets will not be refunded or exchanged. However, if extreme weather or other conditions pose a threat to the safety of visitors and volunteers, the event may be cancelled. Check our website, social media channels and/or your email inbox for cancellation updates.
