We've started our Agricultual Experience.

 

Day 1 included a visit to Algoma Apple Orchards where we we were able to learn about the process of how the apples get from farm to table.

Next we went  to Durham College where we met with a Speaker from the Ministry of Agriculture who took us through farming statistics in Canada in an informative way. One of MY  new learnings was that for many farms, they have approximately 81 cents in expenses for every $1 of sales. This means almost a 20% profit which is a good margin.

 

We also had a chance to see some indoor and  outdoor greenhouses. With any luck, you'll see the green  house below coming to St. Sylvester.
