GREY BRUCE FARMERS' WEEK

Stay Tuned for GBFW 2023!

Planning is underway already for Grey Bruce Farmer's Week 2023. 

We have an exciting speaker lineup coming together, and look forward to bringing you presentations in a variety of formats this year.

 

In-person presentations will be made each day from the Elmwood Community Centre and we cannot wait to see familiar faces gathering together after two years of virtual conferencing.

 

For those who live farther abroad or cannot make it to Elmwood, the conference will also be livestreamed. You can catch all of the action from wherever you are! Livestream recordings will be available for 30 days after the event in an 'Encore Access' as well; whether you'd like to catch up on a presentation you missed, or review information in more detail, it will all be available.

 

On top of recordings from the live program in Elmwood, we plan to offer additional, pre-recorded bonus content, On Demand. You can catch these presentations anytime during the conference or in the 30 days following. This makes for even more great information, while still allowing you to head home from Elmwood on time for chores at the end of each day!

GBFW 2023 dates are set - mark your calendars for: 

Beef Day - Wednesday January 4th 2023

Dairy Day - Thursday January 5th 2023

Goat Day - Friday January 6th 2023

Sheep Day - Saturday January 7th 2023

Horse Day - Sunday January 8th 2023

Ecological Day - Monday January 9th 2023

Crops Day - Tuesday January 10th 2023

Please take the time to peruse this website, and keep in touch with GBFW updates as the year goes on. We hope to see you live in 2023!
