THE REAL DIRT ON FARMING

Your Guide to Food & Farming in Canada

Our food has a story and it starts with Canadian farms.

We’ve heard from Canadians across the country that they want to know more about food production. We have also heard what’s important to you when it comes to the food you eat: topics like food safety, the environment, and the humane treatment of farm animals.

Food is connected to many of the big issues facing our society, from the cost of living and energy, to climate change, and health care. The Real Dirt on Farming is tackling those issues head-on to answer your questions, and to show you what we are doing to feed you safely, nutritiously, and sustainably.

Canadian farming has an impressive story to tell, and we’re pleased that you’re interested to hear it.

Sincerely, Canada’s Farmers and Food Producers
