October is Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan!

#OurFoodHasAStory  #AgMonth2017

Everyone has a food story, whether you’re a farmer, a chef or someone who just loves food! Your story is simply your perceived connection - direct or indirect - to the food you eat or grow.

Saskatchewan agriculture provides the world with plenty of safe, affordable and healthy food. So this October, let's celebrate our Saskatchewan producers and the wide variety of delicious foods and ingredients they grow right here in our province!
