Families with kids of various ages tour the beef barn during an Open Farm Day event at FFDC.

The Farm and Food Discovery Centre welcomes all families to discover the importance of agriculture and explore where food comes from. The centre features interactive displays and windows into a live pig barn to provide visitors with a thorough background on Manitoba's agricultural production practices.

Group visits

  • Two kids are sitting on a model swather cab playing with the the Farming Simulator exhibit at FFDC.
  • Families are climbing on FFDC's red wagon that is pulled by a blue tractor to head out to the dairy barn for a tour.

Guests can visit the Farm and Food Discovery Centre for a unique and most importantly fun learning experience. Grab your crew and book a visit to for a guided tour of the Discovery Centre including a view into the hog barn, add on an optional dairy barn tour including a tractor & wagon ride (weather permitting), and enjoy some free time to play with our interactive exhibits. 

Guided tours can be booked for groups of 10 or more individuals.
