Meet the Ruiter family.

For 62 years, this second-generation dairy farm just outside of Ottawa has been the Ruiter family’s labour of love. Their farm is home to 110 animals and showcases the impressive innovation and technology used in farming today. On June 22, the Ruiter family welcomes you to visit Blackrapids farm to tour a modern dairy barn and witness firsthand how robots seamlessly handle tasks such as milking and feeding, reflecting the Ruiter Family’s commitment to efficiency and sustainability.

Tickets are $5 per person with children 12 and under free. Each ticket includes one (1) breakfast sandwich, milk and a piece of fruit.
