- Our Story
BC Egg is a non-profit organization that oversees and manages the province’s egg farming industry. We work with approximately 144 family owned and operated egg farms which produce over 87 million dozen eggs a year for British Columbians.
We offer you the unique opportunity to show your students where their food comes from and what types of job are available in agriculture.
Tours can be modified for audiences of any age, every tour introduces two of our BC farmers. Starting with a live tour and ending with a live Q+A, participants have a unique opportunity to see a real egg farm and engage with real farmers.
New for 2021, a Q+A panel giving students the chance to talk with people in key agricultural roles—such as animal feed specialists, equipment sales reps, and of course farmers. Some farmers produce eggs, broiler chickens, turkeys and dairy, giving a picture of the different commodities in BC.
This panel is ideally suited for intermediate or secondary school aged youth.
Register your details below! We can arrange the Virtual Ask an Egg Farmer events at dates and times convenient for you and your class or group. Our small team of staff and farmers will join your virtual meeting, allowing you to maintain oversight of the class and control of online security.
Contact us if you have other ideas or needs for virtual events. Plus, we are adding more and more on-demand videos and printable resources to our website all the time!
Visit our “Egg-venture Zone” for more great egg-ucational resources.
The tours are approximately 1 hour, including time to ask the Farmers questions. If your group have a specific request for a shorter or longer session, please feel welcome to contact us.
Tours are available to groups in BC of 12 or more participants.
As we are booking tours several weeks in advance due to popular demand, Group Leaders are being asked if they would be willing to combine with another group of similar age and that has similar availability (example: two groups of Brownies that meet on Mondays at 6pm).
Once we receive your form, we’ll be in touch to schedule a tour date for your group!
