Visit the 17 participating UFA Members and a few Farm and Ranch Supply stores during Alberta Open Farm Days on August 18 and 19.
The sixth annual Alberta Open Farm Days is taking place the third weekend of August. The province wide event showcases the sustainable farm-to-table process of our local food and produce and the stories that come along with each farm. Over 100 farms, ranches and ag-tourism operators will open their gates to all Albertans.
“UFA is proud to be a sponsor of Alberta Open Farm Days as it is a part of our commitment to advocating for our members and the work they do to feed Canada and the world,” said Carol Kitchen, UFA’s President & CEO. “We are proud to have almost 20 members and a few of our Farm & Ranch Supply stores participate in this province wide event.”
This fun filled weekend gives Albertans the opportunity to learn more about their rural neighbours and get a first-hand experience of the farms, produce and talk to the experts.
In addition to farms and ranches around Alberta opening their gates to the community, unique culinary experiences with talented chefs from around Alberta, will be hosted at select farms. A selection of dishes will be made with local produce, from local farmers to demonstrate the complete farm to table process.
