EVENT: Open Farm Day 2020
This Sunday, visit farms from across the province from the comfort of your home!
Open Farm Day is returning September 20th to virtually celebrate 20 years of cultivating agricultural awareness. Traditionally, Open Farm Day is an opportunity for farmers to open their doors to the public to share farming practices and food safety values. This year, farmers have chosen to upload video clips on YouTube or host a Facebook Live on their business page to ensure this important event lives on.
Date: Sunday, September 20th, 2020
Time: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Where: The virtual event will take place via Facebook live or a pre-recorded short video on YouTube.
