Situated on a 65-acre field, our volunteer committee grows crops as a fundraiser for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and Manitoba Agricultural Museum.
All funds raised are matched by Canadian and Manitoba government programs.
Since 2017, over $137,000 has been raised to help end world hunger and preserve our agricultural heritage.
Since 1983, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank has worked to end hunger in the developing world by providing emergency food aid, and helping farmers grow more and better food. With matching support from the Canadian government, in 2016-2017 the organization helped over 900,000 people in 35 countries.
Since 1954, the Manitoba Agricultural Museum operates Canada’s largest collection of vintage agricultural machinery, providing visitors with interactive experiences of pioneer life. The museum is operated by 700 volunteers and welcomed over 25,000 visitors from around the world to its facilities in 2016.
