You can learn from the best about agri-tourism and farm-direct marketing at two workshops being held on Feb. 23 in Leduc and Feb. 24 in Airdrie.
They will be led by Mark Saunders and Angela Grant of Saunders Farm, an award-winning operation near Ottawa that began welcoming farm visitors 25 years ago.
“Originally a strawberry U-pick operation, the farm has grown and redefined what a family farm can be,” said Colin Gosselin of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. “They have had over one million guests, and are active leaders with the North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association.”
The cost is $25 and includes lunch. To register, call 1-800-387-6030.
