Celebrate Ontario's Agricultural Week 2016

Ontario's Agricultural Week is from October 3 to 9 in 2016 - let's celebrate by eating local food more often!

Ontario’s food system is huge; it generates more than $15 billion in GDP and employs more than 214,000 people. Of this, $2.65 billion is generated by farming in the Golden Horseshoe and the Greenbelt.

While farms in the Greenbelt are on average smaller, they produce 23% more Gross Domestic Revenue than the average Ontario farm. They also benefit from natural and locational advantages such as access to key processing industries, highly productive soil types and climate, and proximity to Ontario's largest and growing market.

This year, let’s celebrate this large local food system that produces the food we enjoy every day by supporting our local food producers!
