Portrait of the Family Farm

June 27, 2018

In 2017, Telfer Wegg, Bonnie Sitter, and Fred Helwig combined their talents to produce a book exploring the realities of agriculture in the 21st century. Join photographer Wegg at the South Grey Museum on June 27th as he presents on the changed in our rural farm communities. Today, the 100-acre farm is mostly a memory of the past, having largely been replaced by huge fields supporting specialized agricultural operations. This presentation captures this dramatic shift in rural Ontario by showing the new range of livestock, diversity of crops, and farm buildings new and old, as well focusing on some selected farms. The evening’s goal is to provide a heightened awareness and understanding of today’s farming practices through illustrating the diverse and dynamic agriculture of today. Event starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $7 per person and $5 for museum members.
