Spotlight – 2020 Dufferin Farm Tour
It’s 2020 and the Dufferin Farm Tour was considering cancelling their highly successful annual farm gate tour which attracts thousands of visitors, educates tourists about the importance of knowing how and where their food is being grown. They approached us with a tentative video concept and we helped them evolve that into over 30 minutes of original edutainment including ten short teasers a trailer and a beautiful twenty-minute documentary that sensitively presents the issues facing all stakeholders in agriculture (that’s you!)
Representing the farming community in Dufferin County, Ontario is one of our proudest achievements to date. You can watch the full twenty minute version on the official Dufferin Farm Tour website. Below, watch the trailer.
