A fun-filled March Break is A Piece of Cake at the Canada Agriculture Museum

OTTAWA, February 27, 2013 – Spring is in the air, and as nature prepares to renew itself, the Canada Agriculture Museum (CAgM) is getting ready for the new season, as well as a new exhibition.

From March 2nd to 17th come make the most of March Break at the CAgM by having a sneak peek at the interactive demonstrations for the upcoming exhibition A Piece of Cake exhibition, set to debut in May. Milk, butter, apples, maple syrup, wheat and eggs may be all that is required to bake a delicious cake, but getting those ingredients to your table is no cake walk! Through engaging and unique demonstrations, visitors will follow these ingredients from the farm to their table and learn how much work goes into producing them.

Other demonstrations showcased during the March Break period include butter-making, as well as grain grinding, and maple taffy-making. Visitors will also be invited to take part in eggs-periments to learn how to tell if an egg is fresh or rotten, hard-boiled or raw, and other fun facts about eggs.

Of course, the animal barns will be open for visits; come take a look at how cows are cared for, or milked; go check out the chickens, or pay a visit to your favourite farm animal. Moreover, as March 3-10 is Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week, an initiative of Agriculture in the Classroom Across Canada, March Break is a wonderful time to visit the CAgM.
