Alberta Open Farm Days 2022

August 13 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm

Alberta Open Farm Days is a collaborative, province-wide event that gives Albertans an opportunity to understand where their food comes from and experience the farm.

This event isĀ FREEĀ – so bring your family to the Farming Smarter farm on Hwy 512, just east of Norland Estate.

Visit Farming Smarter Aug. 13 and take yourself on an adventure! Families or individuals can accept a challenge at the gate and visit booths to find how a farmer might solve a problem on farm.

Book yourself onto a wagon ride to explore the research plots and see the variety of crops grown in Alberta. Learn about the work Farming Smarter does to help farmers adopt best management practices that conserve soil and water, reduce pesticide, fertilizer use, and produce some of the best quality food in the world.

Volunteer Lethbridge (VL) will host the barbecue on site. VL connects people and organizations to make positive impacts in the community! Interact with the non-profit agencies that will have activities to do and people to meet.

There will be large farm equipment to explore, small plot equipment to compare with and all kinds of interesting things to see and learn, including crops, animals, food and people that spend their days working in agriculture.

Come on over and explore southern Alberta agriculture in all its forms!

If you have an agriculture story to tell and want a booth on the grounds, contact Sean, 403-317-0022.
