2023 Event Description

Do you crave stories and local food? At Farming Foodies 2023, we are thrilled to host The Kaufman Family who will share their cow tales behind the Holstein and Jersey breeds, along with their competitive experiences at the Royal Winter Fair. We also welcome On-Farm Processors, Kampkreek Dairies, to present their farm to table journeys and will kindly be providing samples of dairy and meat products fresh from their operation (samples are included but some products will be available for purchase). Butter making activity will be incorporated into the program for families. Come and Feed your Body and Mind at our Ag Day Event!

Kampkreek Dairies

“Kampkreek Dairies is an operation built by five siblings in a continuation of a third generation farm. Our goal is to provide fresh water buffalo dairy products from our farm to your home. Water buffalo milk provides a higher fat and protein content than conventional cows milk which is great for overall health. We hope you will enjoy our products as much as we do!”

Farming Foodies Annual Event

To support our highest GDP industry in Perth County we are planning on hosting this event on an annual basis to broaden understanding, and advocate for those who work tirelessly to bring our essential needs to the table.

Each year, we will invite a variety of professionals in the field, who will share their expertise, conduct workshop demonstrations, and provide insight into this fundamental trade.

If you are a local farmer or on-farm processor looking to share your products and stories, we would love to facilitate opportunities for you and your family at the Stratford Perth Museum. Please call 1-519-393-5315 for more information.
