October is Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed October as Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan.  Agriculture Month is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of the agriculture industry to our province and to increase consumer understanding of and trust in modern food production.  Everyone is encouraged to celebrate by exploring their connection to food and food production through the theme, “#CelebrateAg.”

“We recognize the hard work and dedication of Saskatchewan producers,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “Saskatchewan producers are known worldwide for their ability to produce high-quality, safe food and this month we celebrate their contributions to our province.”

Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan is once again collaborating with Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan and industry partners throughout Agriculture Month to share food stories and encourage the public to learn about modern agriculture.

“We are fortunate to live in a province that’s rich in a food and farming culture,” Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan Executive Director Clinton Monchuk said.  “Each year, we’re excited to celebrate everything agriculture during the month of October.”
