Bring your team to Everdale for an inspiring farm-based team building experience for your business or organization. Your team will be contributing to a healthy future, building strong communities, and a sustainable local food system.  As one of the very first Harvest Share farms in Ontario, Everdale has been a trail blazer of the local food movement for over 20 years and specializes in education, food security and hosting farm groups of adults and children effectively.  Take a break from the daily routine and come and enjoy the view from our 50-acre organic farm, nestled in the beautiful hills of Wellington County.

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!
