Crowning the next Ontario Queen of the Furrow

The Ontario Queen of the Furrow competition has been a part of the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo (IPM) since 1960. The recipient of this coveted title will spend a year promoting agriculture, the IPM and the Ontario Plowmen’s Association, parent hosts of the IPM, at a variety of community events throughout the province.

Contestants are selected by local branches to represent their area. They will be accompanied by three judges throughout two days of competition during the IPM, with points assigned based on appearance and deportment, plowing abilities, an interview and a speech on an agriculture-related topic delivered on the Main Stage in front of a crowd of IPM visitors.

The top five contestants will be attributed additional points based on an impromptu speech delivered at the Celebration of Excellence, during which prizes are handed out to plowing competition winners. A new provincial queen will be crowned that evening.
