The front of the Bruce D. Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre is light by early morning sunlight. There is a list dusting of snow on the ground and small icicles hanging off the roof.

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 and the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences

Visit us to discover the journey food takes from farm to fork.
