Respecting Our Agricultural Lands
As a resident, or visitor, it is important to understand how to navigate living in an agricultural community and what to expect. This includes respecting private and agricultural land by not trespassing as it poses a risk to everyone and everything that’s involved – from the public and the grower to crops and livestock.
Sharing the Road with Farm Equipment & Vehicles
To help everyone arrive home safely, please slow down when approaching farm equipment, do not expect the vehicle to pull over on the shoulder (this can be dangerous), make sure the driver can see you before you pass, and share the road! Visit the Ontario Federation of Agriculture for more information.
