Farmers’ Pre-Seeding BBQ a Local Tradition

April 17th 2020

Launched in 2001, the annual Farmers’ Pre-Seeding BBQ has become a tradition within the area’s agricultural community. Each year, 500 tickets are sold for the steak dinner and more than 100 local businesses support the BBQ’s charity auction.

The event has raised over $280,000 to date.

2019 Pre Seeding BBQ

The 2019 Farmers’ Pre-Seeding BBQ was held April 12.  The proceeds will support the Palmerston Fair and donate to these local services:  Palmerston Hospital Foundation, Rural Women’s Support Program, Norwell District Secondary School LEAF Program, 4-H clubs in Wellington and Perth Counties, Minto Fire Department, Palmerston Railway Museum, Palmerston Community Centre, Norgan Theatre and the Ag Society’s post-secondary scholarship.

THANK YOU to the VOLUNTEERS who organize this networking event and to the FARMERS and BUSINESSES who support it.

“The communal effort is essential for the BBQ’s success year after year.”

Thanks for the support and we will see you there!

Committee:  Tony Johnson, 519-497-4427, Dale Connell, Don Hartung, Bill Holzworth, Jason Schneider, Keith Sweeney.
