Agriculture in Prince Edward Island continues to diversify each year, and there are many members of the non-farming community who are understandably curious about the types of crops grown across the Island each summer.
Members of the Island’s agricultural industry have set up the PEI Farm Tour, a series of informational signs placed in fields of different crops across the province. Signs have been placed in roadside fields of many different crops in well-travelled areas of the province to showcase the different types of crops grown on Prince Edward Island and to help the public recognize these crops.
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, 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.
