Farm Gates Open to Public

Canola flowers picked fresh by a Manitoba grower.

On Sunday, Sept 18 many proud MB farmers will be opening their gates to invite folks like you and me into their workplace, home, livelihood – their Farm!

Join Manitoba Canola Growers as they partner with the Van Ryssel Dairy Farm in the Oakbank area.  There will be hourly tours of the dairy facilities – cow barn, calf barn and milking parlour, equipment and tractors to view and a treat tent on the lawn.  On top of all that Allison and I will be there helping you crush your very own sample of canola oil! Afterward you will earn a canola shopping bag that you can load with recipes and a kids activity book.

Hours: 12 noon to 5:00 pm

Directions:1.6 km (1 mile) East of PR206 (Dugald) on Hwy 15, then 4km (2.5 miles) North on Spruce Road to 62077 or 1.6Km (1 mile) East of Oakbank on Springfield Road, .8km (.5 mile) South on Spruce Road to 62077.
