More On Farms~~~Crops

Ontario's Heartland (Southwestern Ontario) sits on the most fertile farmbelt in Canada in the center of the country's most robust food and beverage industry. Its rich soil and rolling landscape have welcomed many generations of food producers and nurtured a strong local food processing industry.

Benefiting from duty-free access to NAFTA markets, Ontario exports nearly $10 billion annually in agri-food. The United States receives over 85% of these exports, 60 percent of which are value-added food or beverage products.

Ontario stretches more than one million square kilometres
(415,000 square miles) – an area larger than France and Spain combined. The northern edge of the province lies at roughly the same latitude as Copenhagen and the Alaskan panhandle.The southern, more temperate border along the Great Lakes(one of the largest freshwater basins in the world) is on the same latitude as Rome and Northern California. Ontario also has almost 20% of Canada’s freshwater resources. The rich agricultural lands and mild climate of southern Ontario allow for the production of more than 200 agricultural commodities – a diversity unmatched in most parts of the world.

Grains Wheat, Barley, Oats and Rye are the main grains…

#3 reminds me of yesteryear when my kids were little - they thought those were giant rolled up 'sleeping bags' for the cows!
