Regional Producer Profiles project

Last year’s pilot project saw the creation of 5 profiles featuring Calgary area farm direct marketing producers. This collection of profiles celebrates the success of regional producers and the uniqueness of their products.

We are continuing the project this year and plan to feature farm direct operators from across Alberta. If you would like your operation profiled, please contact Mimi Lee, New Venture Economist, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry at or 780-968-3552
