More choices than ever at Open Farm Days

Open Farm Days runs Aug. 19-20

Alberta Open Farm Days continues to grow and this year has reached triple digits. More than 100 farms, ranches, and other operations with a connection to agriculture will be opening their doors to the public on Aug. 19-20.

Visiting farms is free and a complete list can be found at www.albertafarmdays.com. The website also has a route planner. You first select the day you want to visit and the region (north, central, or south). The map then shows pins of all the available locations. Clicking on a pin gives a capsule description of the operation (including whether it has washrooms) and allows you to add it to your route, which is shown on a Google map with distances and driving times.

Open Farm Days started in the Maritimes more than a decade ago and this year’s event is the fifth in Alberta. The goal is to “showcase Alberta’s agriculture and tourism industry in a fun, engaging and meaningful manner to participants of all ages.”

There are also 16 culinary events taking place this year as part of the event.
