Project summary and highlights:
- Agritourism in the County- We worked alongside the County of Lennox and Addington to promote tourism in the Agricultural sector by creating online advertising. The emphasis was on consumer-friendly agriculture experiences.
Farm Gate signs are in the process of being printed and will be added to tourism destinations that want to be included in the project.
Consumers will understand the importance of traditional farming as well as the business side.
Partnership with the Culinary Tourism Alliance
The County maintains a database and listing of any and all businesses. Farms will be listed, and a description of the farm will be added. Below is a link to the current page: https://naturallyla.ca/barn-yard-adventures/
- Twilight Farm Meeting- On July 13th, the L&A Holstein club hosted a “Twilight Meeting” where a full dinner was provided. Any farming sector was encouraged to gather and converse and promote wellness within the group. A total of 418 people were served.
Our funding helped with the food/facility and in turn, the OFA was advertised as a sponsor on the tickets, the sponsorship board that was located near the food and a tent was on site to promote the membership.
