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.

I love to share my passion for farming. For the past 8 years I have organized the Farmers of Uxbridge which it is in its 9th year. It takes a lot of work and time to put this event together but that’s part of farming. This year it will be held August 30th from 5-8pm at the Arena Hall in Uxbridge on Brock Street West. I hope you will come and learn about 25-30 local farms and what they produce, where products are marketed and how crops are used. This event is fun for the whole family.


I attend this event every year – and tickets sell out early so don’t wait to get yours!
This is a fun evening to celebrate Durham’s agricultural roots! Those in the agriculture community are invited to come out and enjoy delicious food, entertainment, a silent and live auction and a chance to connect with friends in the community. Proceeds from this Durham Farm Connections Celebrate Agriculture Gala will benefit agricultural awareness efforts in Durham Region.
