MEET ANDREW CAMPBELL Andrew is a third generation farmer from Southern Ontario, milking Holsteins and growing corn, soybeans, wheat & hay at the family farm (Bellson Farms). After his campaign in 2015 to send out a picture a day via Twitter to show life on the farm (#Farm365), he’s now visiting a farm a week across Canada to show where our food comes from. Follow us weekly as we share Andrews’s videos and give you a glimpse into the life of dedicated and hard-working farm families.
