Nova Scotia Open Farm Day

“What is commonplace to farm families is such a novelty to most of us.”

The Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture is proud to support Open Farm Day inn Nova Scotia.

Perhaps due to the growing interest in local food, people turn out in droves on the third Sunday in September to visit farms across the province.

The Nova Scotia Agricultural Awareness Committee would like to thank the sponsors - Sobeys, Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture, and especially the farmers and their families who are so generous with their time and energy for this event.
