The Bruce D. Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre is an exciting hands-on facility which explores the ways in which food is made in Canada. The exciting and interactive exhibits allow visitors to discover every aspect of food production from farming practices, to food processing, to nutrition, and research - and everywhere else on the journey from farm to fork.

About the Glenlea Research Station
The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Glenlea Research Station (GRS) is located 20 minutes south of the University of Manitoba Fort Garry Campus east of Highway #75.
The GRS provides the Faculty with structures and services necessary to support research, training and outreach programs. The livestock and crop infrastructure was created in 1964 and consists of facilities to support research in beef, dairy, swine, poultry and a variety of cropping plots. The Feed Mill currently processes the poultry feed and some dairy and beef grains as well as products for other departments such as Psychology, Human Nutritional Sciences and Animal Science.
The GRS provides the Faculty with structures and services necessary to support research, training and outreach programs. Research focus is primarily in the areas of nutrition, metabolism, production and welfare. The activities support students working toward a BSc, MSc or PhD as well as those intending on a DVM. Other related facilities are the Bruce D. Campbell Farm and Food Discovery Centre supporting outreach and a bio-products processing facility supporting nutrient management. All the crop, livestock and poultry facilities provide our students the opportunity for hands-on, experiential learning. All activities adhere to standards around animal care and welfare, quality and safety.
