Listen to a group of new and passionate Haliburton County farmers describe how they are using food production to sustain a healthy relationship with the community and the land. By reshaping their food environments, they are taking full advantage of affordable land that many deem too rough to grow food on. With innovation and determination, these farmers are growing a viable and resilient local food system featuring diverse crops and livestock. The experience of growing the food that appears on your own plate is celebrated as a feeling like no other, building an appreciation for food production amongst individuals and families.
