Fields to Forks
Fields to Forks brings you an inside look at the industry that feeds us.
Canadian Farmers are the guardians of our land. By tending the soil, raising crops, feeding livestock and harvesting bounty, Farmers provide food, from their fields to our forks. There is a passion, dedication and commitment to quality behind all the work our Farmers do. From farms to manufacturers to distributors, the journey of food production is told in CTV’s Fields to Forks.
