Available when you redeem 200 Solar Dollars from your account
Thanks for your interest in booking a Regenerative Farm Tour with the Harvest to Gather team. It’s going to be a fun day! Plus, by redeeming your Solar Dollars for this tour, you’re not only investing in a unique educational experience, but you’re also contributing to our mission of building a resilient food system in Canada.
Here’s everything you need to know about this awesome reward option—please contact us if you have any questions!
Where does the tour take place?
Each tour takes place at Hillview Farm in Cayuga, Ontario (Haldimand County). This beautiful family farm is home to VG Meats farmer and eldest VG brother Cory Van Groningen, his wife Heidi and their kids. It is a working farm with cattle, chickens, pigs and more.
When are they?
Our upcoming farm tours are taking place on Saturday, September 23rd at 1pm, and Saturday, September 30th at 1pm. Book your tour today.
What will I see on the tour?
You’ll see the land, the animals and plenty of demonstrations about how we care for both! You’ll learn about holistic management, regenerative food production, what it means to be a steward of the land and water, and how your food choices make a difference in local ecosystems. You’ll also get an inside look at our farming practices while enjoying the gorgeous rural scenery. As the name of the farm suggests, you’ll see views for days. Bring a camera!
How do I know if I have Solar Dollars to redeem?
When you log into your rewards account, and click the “Solar Dollars” button that appears on the website, your points balance will be stated. These points are redeemable for any Solar Dollar rewards offers we have available!
Where do I book my farm tour?
It’s quick and easy—just follow this link! We recommend visiting in the late spring, summer or early fall. Book early if you can!
What else do I need to know?
- You are permitted (and encouraged) to bring one guest along on your farm tour.
- We love kids (our farmer has four of his own!) but this is an educational tour on a working farm, so it’s not ideal for children. Infants in carriers are welcome.
- It gets muddy on the farm. Wear boots and dress for the weather!
There are no public bathrooms on the farm, so please plan accordingly. We recommend heading to Hewitt’s Dairy Bar on Highway 6 for an ice cream cone and a bathroom break!
