Your Farmers, Your Nova Scotia

The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture (NSFA) through Meet Your Farmer, is excited to announce a new initiative called “Your Farmers, Your Nova Scotia” that works to build a stronger connection between farmers and the people living in their communities.

“Your Farmers, Your Nova Scotia, was created in an effort to connect Nova Scotians not only with the food on their plates, but how it got there and who produced it. We have seen the rise in the “buy local” movement and we hope that the momentum continues in the years ahead,” said Victor Oulton, President of NSFA. “This campaign will help connect your families to our farm families, one bite at a time.”

The campaign coincides with a refresh of NSFA’s Meet Your Farmer website, and will profile stories of farm families located from one end of the province to the other, share favourite Nova Scotia inspired recipes, and provide details on how to purchase products in order to support the local economy and contribute to efforts of sustaining our food supply.
