Locally Famous Besley Farm located on Victoria St. in Shelburne was a destination location on the highly popular Dufferin Farm Tour and hundreds took advantage to visit. Fall Fair Ambassadors were on hand taking questions from the public and helping to educate. (LtoR) Jr. Ambassador, Sarah Bannon and Sr. Ambassador, Megan Timmins. This farm offered rides, “pick your own pumpkin” and tours.
Learn something new everyday? If you took the tour and visited Besley Farm, you may have noticed this rather unique sight. Brussel sprouts grown on a stalk? Who knew? Speaking to the fact that more and more people have no idea where their food comes from, many do not know this vegetable grows in this manner.
Rows and rows of tomatoes grow in the Besley green houses hydroponically, their roots looking more like a sight out of an alien movie, this sight in a true learning experience in farming and the wonderful contribution technology makes.
