Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan works to build trust in food production in our province and beyond. Read on for more details about the work we’re doing to engage with consumers and industry.
Canadians looking to get behind the scenes and learn more about how their food is produced on family farms have three more opportunities available to them now at www.FarmFood360.ca. Three new Virtual Reality Tours filmed last summer on Ontario beef, chicken and turkey farms have been added to the popular website, joining the 15 farm and food processing tours already on the site.
Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan was pleased to welcome more than 400 registrants to their online Cultivating Trust conference on November 25.
“She is a leader in our farming community,” said Kim Hill of the Chicken Farmers of Saskatchewan, who were thrilled with Martinka’s selection this year. “Through sharing her farming experiences, it has brought a face to our producers and has provided a lot of support for other farmers to share their farming stories.”
This is the fifth edition published since the project’s inception in 2006. To date, 4.5 million copies have been distributed across Canada to libraries, doctors’ offices, Registered Dietitians, political leaders, educators and through inserts in national publications.

Farm & Food Care’s own Clinton Monchuk was recognized recently by CropLife International as a Biotech Food Hero. The online project features “men and women that are securing food supplies for future generations”.
