Did you ever wonder what crops were planted around PEI while out for a Sunday drive?? Well grab your car keys, the PEI Farm Tour is back for another Summer!!
Agriculture in PEI continues to diversify each year, and members of the Island’s agricultural industry have geared up for another Summer of the PEI Farm Tour, which is a series of informational signs placed in fields of 15 different island crops across the province to help islanders identify which crops are grown on PEI.
In addition, there is also a Crop Sign Contest, in which the you can enter on the website which crop sign you have seen and be entered into a draw for an agriculturally-themed canvas print from Farm Yard Photos (Bryan Maynard Photography)!
The PEI Farm Tour is an initiative led by Farm & Food Care PEI and the Prince Edward Island Potato Board, in partnership with the PEI Federation of Agriculture, PEI Wild Blueberry Growers Association, PEI Horticultural Association Inc, PEI Department of Agriculture and Land, PEI Women’s Institute and the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
Special thanks to the large number of farmers who have allowed us to temporarily place signs in their fields for this agricultural awareness project!
We encourage the public to not disturb or pick any of the crops with this signage or enter any fields without permission, but photos of Island fields can be shared on social media with the hashtag #peifarmtour.
