Special Events




Alberta Open Farm Days returns this August 18-19, and farms have until May 31 to register. 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.

Open Farm Days contributes to building public trust in agriculture, and growing the local food sector by directly connecting consumers with producers right on the farm. The Leaman Exchange recently shared their own experience and some tips on two Call of the Land radio segments (interview one and interview two).
