Supporting Farm Families by Celebrating Ontario Agriculture

Sep 29, 2014

Ontario Agriculture Week is an event that celebrates farm families who invest their time to produce and deliver quality products throughout the year. Farm and Foodcare, Foodland Ontario as well as 37,000 farm families throughout Ontario are coming together to raise awareness for Ontario farmers, their families and the work they do for Ontario.

Agriculture week lasts from October 6th to 11th and will hold several events, such as Breakfast on the Farm at Wilmot Orchards in Newcastle, Ontario. Tickets can be reserved for the event at with the first 2,000 receiving a free ticket. Breakfast will be served for free at the event for all attendees.  The Toronto Argonauts and the Hamilton Tiger Cats will also show their support for farmers at their game by hosting a Tribute to Farmers Night. More than 150 farmers will be giving their thanks to fans for their support in purchasing local produce and livestock.

If you want to support farm families as well as Agriculture week but don’t have time to attend any of the events then the hastag  #loveONTfood may be the solution to show your support. The hastag can also be used to take part in a photo contest by submitting a photo with your favorite local business.

The purpose of Ontario Agriculture Week is simple. It is to support all the local producers by celebrating all the hard work that Ontario farm families do to ensure our food is of the highest quality. Ontario farm families, Foodland Ontario as well as Farm and Foodcare also want you to remember that supporting farmers can be accomplished beyond Agriculture Week. It begins and continues by purchasing from local vendors and farmers markets throughout the year. Using hastag #loveONTfood also shows your friends and families that you support your community and gives them information about local vendors offering quality produce. It is an opportunity for farmers and the community to thank one another for choosing Ontario.
