Our Food Has A Story: Celebrating Agriculture Month In Saskatchewan

Released on September 26, 2018

October has been proclaimed as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan.  Throughout the month people are encouraged to learn more about Saskatchewan agriculture and get involved in the conversation about modern food production.

Keeping the momentum of previous years, the theme for Agriculture Month is “Our Food Has a Story.”  People are invited to share their unique food story to build a connection between how our food is produced and ends up on our plates.

“Agriculture Month provides an opportunity for our producers to show their passion for producing sustainable, healthy and affordable food,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “By connecting with consumers about what we do, and why we do it, farmers and ranchers are building public trust and that is an important part of our industry in Saskatchewan.”

The Ministry of Agriculture and Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan are collaborating with Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan and Ag More Than Ever to engage industry throughout Agriculture Month to share food stories and encourage the public to learn about modern agriculture focusing on health and nutrition, affordability, food safety, and sustainability.

“I’m always excited when Agriculture Month rolls around as it gives everyone an opportunity to talk about food and farming,” Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan Chair Erwin Hanley said.  “Consumers want to know more about how their food is grown and the engaging stories, videos and pictures that are shared during the month of October aim to highlight food in this great province.”
