Tour the valley and meet your local farmers and food producers.
The Ottawa Valley Food Co-op in cooperation with Renfrew County Economic
Development, the National Farms Union and the Renfrew County Federation of
Agriculture are organizing the first Farms Open event for Renfrew county, The intent of this event is to
showcase the advantages of local food, the art and science of producing it, and
develop relationships between consumers and producers. Farms Open will give host
farms and food artisans a chance to open their space to the public and share their
passion and unique lifestyle with families, foodies and the rural curious — those who
otherwise have few opportunities to experience a working farm or commercial food
Similar events are run annually in Atlantic Canada, Alberta and in other countries
around the world. During the pandemic there has been increased interest in local food
as well as demand for staycation adventure, especially those such as Farms Open that
will tantalize the taste buds and bring us closer to nature.
