We all eat, and we all have fond food memories. No matter our background, or link to agriculture, we all have a connection to food, and a story or two to tell. Share your story, and have a little fun doing it.
We want to hear your food stories! All you have to do is post a food story text, picture, or video on Facebook*, Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #OurFoodHasAStory. You’ll be entered to win one of four Agribition ticket packages, drawn weekly, or the grand prize of a $250 Co-op gift card! More contest details here.
Challenge your friends and family on social media to do the same! We all need to talk about the values we share as Saskatchewan people. Good Saskatchewan grown food is one of them and it’s a story worth sharing and celebrating.
* If using Facebook, please ensure the Privacy Setting for that post is set to Public so that others can see it and share it.
Why Ag Month? Agriculture Month is a time to celebrate agriculture and share our stories about food and farming. It is proclaimed annually in Saskatchewan, providing the perfect opportunity for those who grow food, and those who love to eat it, to connect.
Each year, the agriculture industry works together to tell their chapters of the food story through campaigns, events and programming. Through the celebrations, we hope to help people better understand how Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers raise their livestock and grow their crops, while engaging in authentic conversations with people from around the province.
In Saskatchewan, we have a lot to be proud of. Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers provide the world with plenty of safe, affordable and healthy food. Our scientists develop innovative solutions to meet growing demand for food. And our producers and agribusiness work together to care for the environment we all rely on. Each October, we celebrate these many accomplishments.

“Food really does bring people together, no matter where you are in the world; there is that strong connection between food, culture and tradition.”
“Canada has one of the best systems to safeguard our plants, our animals, and our food. This is the Canadian Inspection Food Agency, but also Canadian farmers and ranchers who are at the base of food production care about the safety, quality, and sustainability of Canadian food for Canadians.”
