Alberta Open Farm Days gives farmers and ranchers a chance to invite their urban cousins and rural neighbours to stop in for a visit to share stories, see demonstrations, and learn more about the people who grow their food.
The event takes place Aug. 19-20 and it’s expected more than 90 farms, ranches and ag-tourism operators will open their gates to visitors.
Producers who are interested in participating can go to www.albertafarmdays.com and click on the Farm Experiences tab for an online registration form and brochure. The brochure has general guidelines, tips on possible activities, and how to get promotional material.
The event also offers culinary experiences, with some of Alberta’s most talented chefs and rural communities hosting farm-to-table events featuring Alberta farm products.
