Last week was our third annual Edutainment Tour here at Manitoba Harvest and it was awesome! We had retailers from all across North America visit our head office in Winnipeg, Manitoba to go on some fun tours, indulge in some delicious hemp foods and learn a bit more about what goes on between our four walls.
We kicked off the Edutainment tour on August 18 with an amazing dinner at The Merchant Kitchen. It was a hemp-themed menu with yummy appetizers, salads, entrees and dessert filled with Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts!
The next day started with a tour of one of our farmer’s hemp fields. Clarence, our Director of Farm Operations, and Jennifer, our Agronomist, toured the guests around the field and taught them all about how hemp is farmed. They also talked about our seed to shelf approach and what makes Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts so special.
After a tasty lunch (filled with more hemp foods of course), the guests got a behind the scenes tour of our manufacturing facility. They saw our seed receiving bins and quality lab, and visited our packaging, dehulling, and press and mill departments. It was a great tour that showed our guests exactly how we make our Hemp Hearts, hemp oil and hemp protein powders. At the end of the tour the guests each got a special treat to take home – a bag of Hemp Hearts that were packaged that day!
Once all of the tours were finished, the guests got the chance to visit the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and tour through all of the amazing exhibits. Later that evening we had dinner at the museum and got the chance to watch The Drum Café perform! They handed out African drums to each of the guests and we all got to take part in the show. It was truly an unforgettable experience.
We hope our guests had as much fun as we did and that they learned more about Manitoba Harvest and what makes us unique. Check out some of the awesome pics from the event below or see the full album on our Facebook page!
