Agriculture for Life is launching a ‘Farmers in Flannel’ photo contest to celebrate farmers and a successful harvest.
“When the leaves start to fall and the temperatures start to drop below zero, there’s no article of clothing that’s as omnipresent as the flannel shirt,” said Ag for Life.
Alberta producers are being urged to “channel their flannel” by submitting photos to agricultureforlife.ca (click on the Contests tab). The website notes that flannel is not the same as plaid — the former is the material and the latter is the pattern.
Winners of the contest, which is open until Nov. 30, will receive “a warm his-and-her flannel gift pack” from UFA Co-operative.
