If you are looking for a fun yet educational experience for your road trip to the RM of Ritchot, then there is no better place than the Bruce D. Campbell Farm & Food Discovery Centre! During your visit, you will learn how food is made in Canada through exciting and interactive exhibits. Learn about every aspect of food production from farming practices to retail sales, leading visitors from the farmer’s wheat field to the kitchen table.

Currently, the Centre is close, but they are taking bookings for private tours in February. There are no drop-ins at this time.

Crow Wing Trail (St. Adolphe)

Hiking during the winter is just as much fun as doing it in the summer! Experience the section of the Crow Wing Trail that runs through St. Adolphe for a unique and visually spectacular adventure! Along the way, you can see many magnificent sights. This section has the highest known concentration of Chimney Swifts in the province, has incredible opportunities for spotting wildlife, and is simply stunning.
