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, “Our Food Has a Story.”


“Agriculture month is a time to highlight our connection to food and the role agriculture plays in the lives of Saskatchewan people,” Marit said. “From primary production and research to processing and technology, there are many stories to share about the care and consideration that goes into producing the healthy, nutritious meals on our plates.”


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.


“We are all connected through food,” Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan’s Executive Director Clinton Monchuk said. “Celebrating Agriculture Month gives everyone in this province the opportunity to engage in dialogue about what we eat and how Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers produce it.”
