The Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame has relocated to our new home at:
Ontario AgriCentre, 100 Stone Road West, Guelph, Ontario.

The Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame Association was incorporated in 1979 as a non-profit association under the Corporations Act of Ontario. The Hall of Fame opened June 1, 1980 with the induction of nine pioneer agriculturists (all deceased) who represented more than 100 years of combined efforts and initiatives in building a better agriculture for the province. Currently 219 individuals have been inducted into the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame (OAHF) located at Country Heritage Park in Milton, Ontario.
