Alberta Open Farm Days: Yellowhead County

This post was sponsored by a partnership between Alberta Open Farm Days, Yellowhead County, and Community Futures West Yellowhead.  I received monetary compensation in exchange for this post. As always, all thoughts and options are my 100% my own.  

I have been having the most amazing summer.  You may remember last year when I worked alongside Community Futures West YellowheadYellowhead County, and Alberta Open Farm Days to bring a locally sourced meal to Yellowhead County.  I also visited all of the farms and blogged about my experiences.

Well I had so much fun last year, that this year I am working with all of those organizations again and this time taking on a leadership role, coordinating the events in my community this August 18/19th. 
I've been working with a really amazing team of individuals that I've learned a lot from! This truly has been an awesome Alberta summer. 
You can tour the farms on your own in a self guided driving tour, or you can join a bus tour.  
The bus tour that I'll be curating lunch for is in Yellowhead County -  not only will you get to visit 5 farms, you'll also enjoy a locally curated lunch featuring a pig roast, homemade buns, locally sourced salads and salad dressings made from orchard fruits and garden vegetables, and freshly baked pies featuring sour cherries, Saskatoon berries, and hascaps (honey berries).   Tickets are only $40 a piece and you can get them HERE
