The Bruce D. Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre is the first hands-on facility which will explore the ways in which food is made in Canada. The centre is located at the National Centre for Livestock and the Environment, at the University of Manitoba’s Glenlea Research Station.
Exciting and interactive exhibits lead visitors from the farmer’s wheat field to the kitchen table. A highlight of these exhibits are viewing windows into real working pig barn, where visitors will peek into a day in the life of a pig.
Visitors learn about every aspect of food production from farming practices to retail sales. The Discovery Centre also highlights ongoing research at the National Centre for Livestock and the Environment.
The centre's design features flexibility, and includes a multipurpose room, exhibit areas, office and reception, washrooms and storage space. Other features include a dedicated parking lot, a bus drop-off zone, a landscaped picnic area and outside exhibits designed to mimic river lots upon which Manitoba crops can be grown. The multipurpose space will support hands-on activities and can be used for public presentations and meetings.
