Canada Ag Day

 

February 12th 2019. Canada’s Agriculture Day is a time to showcase all of the amazing things happening in our industry and create a closer connection with consumers about where their food comes from and the people who produce it. It’s important for all of us in the industry to show our ag pride, celebrate our industry and be part of the food conversation every day.

 

 

 

County Events: 

In celebration of Canada Ag Day, County Federations of Agriculture will be hosting FREE community screenings of the film “Before the Plate“.

A film that attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and farming in Canada. Modern consumers are increasingly interested in where and how their food gets to them, but accurate information is hard to come by and often feels out of reach. Before The Plate follows young farmers and industry experts in order to show the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answer the most pressing questions consumers have about their food. The film will follow food staples of the Canadian diet all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations, and showcase the final product at Canoe, one of Toronto’s most prestigious restaurants.
