A farm group is looking to honour a champion of agriculture in Saskatchewan.
Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan is accepting nominations for farmers or groups which promote Saskatchewan agriculture and help build consumer trust.
She says it is important for the farming community to tell its story to consumers.
With fewer people involved in agriculture, she says consumers are not aware of the care and attention which farmers put into placing safely-produced product on store shelves.
She says farmers have a great story to tell and Saskatchewan grows a lot of fantastic food, with 43 per-cent of Canada’s arable land.
Buettner says several nominations have already been received.
Nominations close on Friday, with the winner to be announced at the annual Farm and Food Care conference in Saskatoon on December 15th.
