Food Farms - Food Production and Modern Agriculture Teaching Tools

Food Farms are an interactive, hands-on opportunity for children to learn about food production and modern agriculture. In Saskatchewan, the program was initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture’s Yorkton Regional Office, who developed the first Pizza Farm in 2013. In May and June grades 3 and 4 students seed the crops and learn about the livestock that provide ingredients for some of their favourite foods, and they return to harvest their crops and produce in September.

Food Farms are growing across the province, thanks to partnerships between industry stakeholders, Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan and Ministry regional staff.  This year, more than 1,500 students will participate in one of the nine Food Farms across Saskatchewan.
