New Hamburg Fall Fair

2019 EDUCATION DAY 

Education day is one of the best parts of the fair!


Each year, the Wilmot Agricultural Society hosts a

free educational program for Wilmot schools and

home school students in Grade 4.  Education day

takes place on the Friday of the fair and runs for

roughly three hours.  Busing is graciously covered

by our sponsors.


Students will have the opportunity to experience

first hand how a dairy farm operates. Thank you to

Green Acre Farms and the Wagler Family for

graciously opening their doors and welcoming us to

their farm for a second year. During their time at

Green Acre Farms, students will travel through

learning stations including, healthy eating, internet

safety and, of course, dairy education. Students will

also enjoy a snack from local farms and businesses. Specific details on the presenters will be available in May.

Groups are invited to join us during one of two time periods: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. or 11:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. There is no charge for students to participate in this program and busing will be provided to all schools through the generous donations of our sponsors.

THANK YOU TO OUR 2018 EDUCATION DAY SPONSORS - THE NEW HAMBURG OPTIMISTS, WATERLOO DAIRY PRODUCER COMMITTEE AND FARM CREDIT CANADA!


Education day 2018 went on a field trip!  Students had the opportunity to experience first hand how a dairy farm operates. Thank you to Green Acre Farms and the Wagler Family for graciously opening their doors and welcoming us for this experience.  During their time at Green Acre Farms, students traveled through learning stations including healthy eating, interest safety, and dairy education.  They also learned about the process of taking milk from farm to table! 
 

2018 EDUCATION DAY was a hit!
