Our Farm in the City is a children’s book about Ottawa’s Experimental Farm, where scientists and agriculturists study farming practices and improve them for places where farming might be more difficult. With gorgeous illustrations and easy-to-understand, engaging text, this book is sure to inspire your little ones to learn more about the wonderful world of agricultural science. This beautiful short story encompasses every aspect of Ottawa’s Experimental Farm, from baby animals in the springtime to tobogganing in the wintertime.
