Ontario Agriculture Week celebrates the harvest season

October 7 to 13th marks Ontario’s Agriculture Week — a week to enjoy the produce, meat, and food that Ontario farmers grow and produce.

A celebration of the fall harvest season, Agriculture Week is also intended to raise awareness of the economic impact of farming and agriculture in the province, recognizing those who work in the farming and food processing industry and the rural communities they live in.

Those who would like to participate are encouraged to share photos and social media posts of their week, the made-in-Ontario food they are enjoying, or their farms, using the hashtag #loveOntfood and #OntAg. Y0u could also:

  • Visit a farmers’ market, on-farm market, pick-your-own farm or farmgate. Don’t forget, you can also pick up Ontario wines and Craft ciders at farmers’ markets;
  • Look for the Foodland Ontario logo when you’re shopping in local grocery stores to know you’re buying Ontario;
  • Try a new recipe for your Thanksgiving feast; or,
  • Make it possible for other Ontario families to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal by donating food items, money or time to your local food bank, food program or another charitable organization.

Saskatchewan is also marking Agriculture Month this month, encouraging farmers and consumers to use the hashtag #OurFoodHasAStory for social sharing.
