Alberta Open Farm Days

August 18 to 19

Alberta Open Farm Days returns this August 18-19! Farms have until May 31 to register online. Last year’s event broke records with 101 host farms; 20,000 visits; 22 farm-to-table culinary events; and over $146,000 in on-farm sales. Farm recruitment was featured in a recent Western Producer article here.

open farm daysOpen Farm Days contributes to building public trust in agriculture, growing the local food sector, and increasing ag-tourism by directly connecting consumers with producers right on the farm. Host farms can choose which day (or both days) they wish to open their gates, and are provided insurance specific for the event at no cost to them.

The Leaman Exchange recently shared their own experience and some tips on two Call of the Land radio segments (interview one and interview two).

It's no secret, running a farm direct business means paying attention to many moving parts that often take you out of the field and into the office. That's why Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is hosting a series of webinars for producers and processors that will help build savvy marketing and staffing skills.

All Webinars start at 9 a.m. and run 60 minutes in length and include Q&A time.
