An inspiring farm-based team building experience for your business or organization

Take a break from the daily routine. Get out of the office and enjoy the view from our 50-acre organic farm, nestled in the beautiful hills of Wellington County.  As one of the very first Harvest Share farms in Ontario, Everdale has been a trailblazer of the local food movement for over 20  years and specializes in education, food security and hosting farm groups of adults and children effectively.   Why not come for some Vitamin D and work alongside our skilled farmers?   At the end of the day, know that your work contributed to a healthy future, strong communities, and a sustainable local food system.

When your team comes to the farm they will:

  • Have a positive social impact on your community by helping to grow and harvest fresh food to directly support hunger relief
  • Do light work in the vegetable fields alongside Everdale’s amazing team of farmers and program staff
  • Strengthen and improve communication between team members which fosters innovation and trust in your team
  • Increase awareness of food literacy and healthy community food solutions
  • Experience an inspiring day at beautiful Everdale farm and contribute to a great cause at the same time
  • Relax and enjoy our welcoming facilities
  • Have Fun!
