Delta Farmers Institute

Meet Your Neighbours: Dairy Farmers

Purpose.


Delta is an interesting municipality, where many people are moving to, but have little or no understanding of how the farms are part of the community. In an effort to allow people to understand their farming neighbours, Delta Farmers Institute commissioned the creation of a series of videos showing people from the community exploring farms in their area.

Results.


A tour of Seabreeze Farms was captured, documenting the process they use to recycle manure into bedding and fertilizer, while created methane gas that is sold to Fortis. A family from nearby was shown around the facility and experienced a bit of the behind scenes process by working on the farm a bit. Increased engagement and understanding in the community regarding their farming neighbours was achieved.
