New BCM&CC exhibit explores farming & agriculture history in Bruce County

Ahead of Ontario Agriculture Week (October 3-9), the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre presents its new fall exhibit, Farm Fresh, exploring the history of agriculture in Bruce County.

The exhibit focuses on the importance of farming by examining its contributions to early and modern economies, community growth, and fostering strong community bonds.

Complemented by items from the Museum’s permanent collection, Farm Fresh examines farming technologies, life on the farm, off-shoot industries, community groups, changing trends in the business of agriculture, and Indigenous farming practices.

“It’s exciting to be bringing Bruce County’s important agricultural history to the forefront in our gallery space and to be highlighting these stories,” says Museum Curatorial Assistant Laura Leonard.

Also included in the exhibit is a companion piece from Archives Ontario’s Fresh from the Farm. This portion of the exhibit examines how farming in Ontario has transformed the land and created communities, and how food reaches our tables.

Farm Fresh Bruce County opens October 1 and will run through December 31. For full details visit
