Did you shop from a farm this year? Whether it was direct from a farm, through local business, the Open Farm Days and Organic Box collaboration during the lockdown in the spring of 2020, or during the Open Farm Days event there are always lots of opportunities to shop from a farm.
This holiday season is no different, and we’re collecting the different ways you can add Albertan farm products to your holiday tradition.
This can be done by purchasing ingredients for your meals from a farm, purchasing presents for others (sharing the local farm love), attending an event on a farm, or purchasing artisanal products using local ingredients.
Since the holiday season is busy – and add on top a challenging 2020 – we wanted to make it easy for you by compiling gifts and food parcels you can buy directly from your local farmers.
