The London Farm Show is back at Western Fair District in its 79th year. The show, presented by Farm Credit Canada, is the largest spring farm show in Eastern Canada and will feature the top agricultural exhibits, displays, technology, seminars and education.

The three day show boasts over 370 exhibitors and 300,000 square feet of show space, bringing together agri-business in preparation for the 2017 farming season. 

“The show continues to grow and adapt to support the ever-changing business of agriculture and 2017 is no different. We highlight new technology, the top services and products in the industry. Each year we shine the spotlight on current topics and issues affecting agriculture in our region today,” explains Cheron Chamberlain, Show Manager. “It is an event that we take great pride in, we want to ensure it provides quality content and an exceptional customer experience, worth a day away from the farm to research, learn and network with the farming industries’ best.” 

The London Farm Show brings current and trending topics to improve agricultural operations. Daily speakers and seminars will take place in the Dupont Pioneer educational lounge. The National Bank Stage will feature Andrew Campbell and Moe Agostino, who will provide knowledgeable and articulate commentary on the agriculture industry. Campbell’s session “Lessons in Advocacy – Tips to Help You Speak Up” and Agostino’s, “2017 Community Market Outlook, Risk and Opportunity” will help educate attendees.  

Also, at the show will be the annual induction of worthy recipients into the Middlesex Agricultural Hall of Fame which will take place Wednesday, March 8th at 11am in the Carousel Room at Western Fair District. The 2017 ceremony honours Richard Albert and Henry Noel Gibson; Dr. Donald Guest Grieve and Meredith Robb who all made significant contributions to the agricultural industry in Middlesex County. 

As always the staff and volunteers of Western Fair District’s Farm Show look forward to welcoming the agriculture community to this year’s event.
