Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Canada Agriculture and Food Museum ... Tractors … a ride to remember …

Canada Agriculture and Food Museum
"A Ride to Remember"

We welcome you to come along as Ontario Visited Tours the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum … continues …Tractors … a ride to remember …
After viewing this showcase we entered the exhibition hall to see Tractors and "Taking Care of Beesness" Exhibitions.  What a blast. I felt like a kid again. Here children (young and old) can climb up on and experience the “ride”. On one tractor you could experience the feel of an old metal wheel compared to a rubber tire. None of it felt like riding in the fields with my grandpa though, I think he treated us to the soft hay bails on many rides while I had no idea how “bumpy” it was for him. I am surprised farmers backs hold out. 
The large new technological tractor allowed you to experience high up in a “real tractor” the feel travelling along the fields while a film screen re-enacted the scenery for you. You might be able to tell from the photo that I was laughing, it was an amazing experience and I applaud all farmers who endure such challenging work. Small children have the opportunity to put on denim jackets and really dress the part of a farmer. Again, Kelly was able to tell us, that visitors can experience the animals on the day they get “their nails trimmed”, while the hoof trimmer comes on a regular basis. The Museum offers visitors the opportunity to admire signs and objects used to market these machines, and explore a century of technological advancement through the variety of tractors on display. These include the Cockshutt 30 and the tracked Caterpillar 15.

If you are a true explorer and love adventure, the sister Museums of the CAFM are the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum …. Other great adventures waiting for visitors to explore! Next time you are driving by, stop in, it is worth every moment!
Thank you again to Kelly Ray, Canada Agriculture and Food Museum for our Ontario Visited Behind the Scenes Tour ...
