Check out the new Newfoundland and Labrador Farm Guide! It was recently released by the province as a go-to directory to find local farms and agricultural products. There are over 100 farms listed and lots to get excited about.
The inaugural Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week began on February 26 and will be wrapping up on March 3, 2012. Schools across the country have been participating in the hands-on program, which is teaching children about agriculture and encouraging them to celebrate the industry by connecting them with farmers, local food sources and in some cases, taking them on tours of area farms. Across the province, over 1,100 students in grades 3, 4, and 5 have been delighting in presentations about local agriculture, organized by the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Agriculture (NLFA) and the Department of Natural Resources.
