DIXONS CORNERS — The farming community was out in full force last Friday at the annual Dundas Seed, Forage, and Agricultural Show. The March 9 event held at Matilda Hall was filled with over 40 farm and equipment vendors.
Barbecue style food was served by volunteers with proceeds to benefit Timothy Christian School.
One of the main events of the show was the annual baking competition. This year’s challenge was to make a hot milk cake.
This year’s judges were; DFO Rep. Nick Thurler, Mayor of South Dundas Evonne Delegarde, and Simply Baked baker Claire Faguy.
The judges scored the participants on three categories — presentation, texture, and flavour.
With 14 submissions this year the judges really had their work cut out for them.
Dundas Soil and Crop Improvement Association member Mark Tibben was surprised at the large number of submissions.
“It’s got to be close to a record,” he said.
The top five bakers this year were; 5th place — Cassidy Porteous, 4th place — Liz Vandenberg, 3rd place — Tracey Porteous, 2nd place — Japke Tibben, and the first place winner was Andrea Coch of Winchester.
Awards were handed out to local farmers for the best cereals, haylage, corn, etc. Tibben Farms stole the show winning a majority of the prizes.
