Some 75,000 people – many of them “city slickers” – will get a taste of farm life at the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo.
It’s on Sept. 20 to 24 in Minto (Harriston) in Wellington County, about an hour north of Stratford, on the farm of Earl and Anne Schneider.

With the theme “A Fresh Taste of Farming,” the match is more than a little bit country in its 99th year of the rural extravaganza.
“Ontarians can explore rural lifestyles and learn about the importance of agriculture in the local, provincial and Canadian economies,” said Don Priest, president of the sponsoring Ontario Plowmen’s Association.
