Seed and Forage Show a “growing” success


This year’s Seed and Forage Show, hosted in Chesterville by the Dundas Soil and Crop Improvement Association, proved that the event is a “growing” success – pun intended. The event saw excellent attendance on Friday, March 8, at the Chesterville Legion, with over 125 people through the door throughout the day. 

“Overall, we had another excellent show in Dundas this year,” said event Chair, Adrian Lee. “There were 133 seed entries from 25 different seed show exhibitors, and 33 businesses for the trade show exhibitions.”

Adrian reported that the popular baking competition this year featured New York style cheesecake, with five different cheesecakes that all “tasted and looked amazing!” After the competition, show organizers were able to sell off pieces of the remaining cheesecake to support the 4-H Club, raising $220 in total.

“I was very pleased with every aspect of the show,” Adrian added. “A lot of work goes into the show, and I’m very fortunate as Chair to have great volunteers and directors from DSCIA to help make this all happen.”

Other event organizers include Co-Chair Mark Tibben, Secretary Jess Menkhorst, and Directors Dave Barkley, Ron Toonders, Matt Spruit, Mike Roosendaal, Jason Byvelds, and Graham and Elaine Duke. The show is held annually, and continues to be a success year after year.
