During a visit to the Norwood Fall Fair in his home county of Peterborough, Jeff Leal, Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture, completed his outfit with a hat many farmers will recognize.

Minister Leal donned a limited edition Better Farming hat, complete with corn cobs on the side. He gathered for a photo with other local government representatives and Tom Klompmaker, a director with the Chicken Farmers of Ontario and the provincial chicken representative during the ongoing NAFTA discussions.

But the Norwood Fall Fair isn’t the only time Minister Leal was spotted wearing his favourite Ontario ag magazine hat this year.

Earlier in the year, as he discussed weather challenges and Ontario’s risk management programs with farmers, photographers snapped a photo of Minister Leal wearing the Better Farming accessory.

The Norwood Fall Fair was established in 1868, only one year after Confederation!
