The Real Dirt on Farming publication is Farm & Food Care’s flagship publication. Less than two percent of Canadians live or work on a farm, and the publication strives to address some common questions – and debunk misconceptions Canadians have about our food and who produces it.
Building on the success of this publication, Farm & Food Care is taking the Real Dirt booklet “on the road” by creating a video series called The Real Dirt Road Trip.
Very few Canadians have the chance to see day-to-day activities that take place on working farms and have face-to-face conversations with Ontario’s farmers. The Real Dirt Road Trip aims to make this experience more attainable through video tours and interviews with farmers, growers, and food processors. This series includes visits to a variety of farms and food facilities, with a focus on those that are less accessible or well-known by the average Canadian and those that are not commonly featured.
