Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan (FFC SK) is incredibly proud to salute Dorothy Long on the announcement of her induction into the Saskatchewan Agriculture Hall of Fame. The announcement was made today during Crop Production Week in Saskatoon.
Dorothy is a lifelong champion of Canadian food and farming. As a Saskatchewan farm girl turned home economist, she has worked for almost 30 years to promote Canadian-grown foods and the industry that produces them.
Dorothy has developed and collaborated on a bounty of marketing strategies including CanolaInfo, Cuisine Canada, Growing Saskatchewan, HealthyFlax, Spread the Mustard and Pick Pork. She is passionate about informing and inspiring consumers, food media, writers, chefs and dietitians from around the world about Canadian food, farmers and agriculture.
Dorothy is currently Director of Communications at Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan where she spearheads the Canadian Food Focus project – a consumer-friendly website and marketing strategy that recently won a national CAMA Award for Best Website Directed at the Public. Canadian Food Focus has been the culmination of Dorothy’s lifelong mission to build consumers’ understanding, trust and food literacy through sharing stories and information about Canadian farms and food.
“We are so proud of Dorothy,” said Clinton Monchuk, Executive Director of FFC SK. “We feel lucky to call on her experience and passion for Canadian food and farming. It’s wonderful to see her hard work recognized.”

Today, less than 3% of Canadians have a direct connection to the farm, which is one reason why so many have questions about how their food is produced. Farm & Food Care works to address consumer questions and inspire more confidence in our farmers and in Saskatchewan-grown foods.
