Alberta Open Farm Days is about ranchers and farmers inviting their urban and rural neighbours to share stories, see demonstrations, and learn more about the people producing their food.
The weekend also provides guests the chance to sample and experience field to table culinary delights at foodie events taking place in rural communities across the province.
The initiative continues to grow and provide valuable opportunities to connect Albertans to rural life and help them understand where their food comes from, the role agriculture plays in our economy and the incredible opportunities afforded by a strong agricultural industry. In 2014, 63 farms and ranches welcomed over 7000 visitors who experienced Alberta agriculture firsthand. Mark your calendars for this year’s third annual event and plan to join us.
Producers interested in participating in the 2015 Open Farm Days can register at Open Farm Days. Share your agriculture story. Registration deadline: May 31, 2015.
Alberta Open Farm Days is presented by Ag for Life, Alberta Association of Agricultural Societies, Alberta Culture and Tourism and Agriculture and Rural Development in partnership with Travel Alberta.
