On September 15, 2020 Glacier FarmMedia announced its intention to establish Discovery Farm Woodstock as the permanent home of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show and an applied research facility designed to strengthen Ontario’s agriculture sector. Glacier FarmMedia is working with the Ontario Government on an agreement to purchase the current site of the annual farm show and lease adjacent land.
Discovery Farm Woodstock will focus on farmer-driven applied research and innovation in the area of soil health in a field and classroom framework. There will also be initiatives shaped around educating farmers and connecting the public to Ontario’s robust and evolving agri-food sector.
Discovery Farm Woodstock is the home of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show, the largest outdoor farm show in Eastern Canada. The three-day show in Woodstock in September features field and livestock demonstrations, speakers, and the latest innovations in agricultural technology. Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show welcomes more than 42,000 farmers each year as well as 750 exhibitors.
