Alberta Open Farm Days returns this August 18-19, and farms have until May 31 to Register Online.
Last year’s event broke records with 101 host farms; 20,000 visits; 22 farm-to-table culinary events; and over $146,000 in on-farm sales. Farm recruitment was featured in a recent Western Producer Article.
Open Farm Days contributes to building public trust in agriculture, growing the local food sector, and increasing ag-tourism by directly connecting consumers with producers right on the farm. Farms can choose which day (or both days) they wish to open their gates, and are provided insurance specific for the event at no cost to them.
Join us and explore Alberta this summer. Want to be an Open Farm Days host or help in another volunteer capacity? Visit albertafarmdays.com for more info.
