Our Food Has a Story: Celebrating Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan

Released on September 28, 2017

The government has proclaimed October as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan.  This year’s theme is once again “Our Food Has a Story,” to continue telling the stories of how food is produced and ends up on our plates.

“Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers have a passion to sustainably produce healthy and affordable food, something that is at the heart of our industry in Saskatchewan,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said.  “This month provides an opportunity for producers to connect with consumers about what we do, and why we do it.  For example, there’s a great story behind the high-quality feed ranchers choose – it leads to healthy livestock and nutritious food for families.”

During the month of October, the Ministry of Agriculture, Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan, Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan and Ag More Than Ever are collaborating with industry to share food stories and engage the public in conversations about modern agriculture.

The month-long campaign will feature four weekly sub-themes: “Health and Nutrition” from October 1 - 7, “Affordability” from October 8 - 14, “Food Safety” from October 15 - 21, and “Sustainability” from October 22 - 31.

A number of “agvocates” have been selected as the faces of Agriculture Month and they will share their connection to food and what agriculture means in their lives.  These voices include blogger Laura Monchuk, rancher Adrienne Ivey and registered dietitian Brooke Bulloch.  To find out more about these spokespeople, visit

“We are excited to continue the great values-based conversations about the role of modern agriculture through the Our Food Has a Story campaign,” Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan Chair, Erwin Hanley said.  “The inspiring stories we are hearing are helping us all gain a further understanding of how a productive and healthy agriculture industry contributes to our quality of life.”
