Agriculture is Important

I grew up on a Dairy Farm on the edge of Uxbridge and married a farmer 45 years ago so farming is very important to me. Last year for the Sesquicentennial, Durham’s agricultural roots where highlighted and Beach family were recognized for farming in Canada for over 150 years. My side of the family missed out as they have only been farming for 146 years.
