Children learn about farming at fall fair

Kingston, ON, Canada / CKWS TV

As you just saw — the 186th agricultural society fall fair is well underway.
Earlier today, this was education day at the fair.
Local students were at the memorial centre — seeing everything from goats and pigs to chickens and eggs.
Local food producers taught children about where the food on their tables comes from.

“There is not a direct connection to the farm for most people, and we haven’t really done a great job maybe as farmers telling our story and over the last few years we’re starting to do a lot more of that.
So we’re here today really to tell our story about what do we do on the farm because today only 2 per cent of the population are living or working on farms.”
