Farm & Food Care Ontario is holding its annual Faces of Farming calendar contest. The Faces of Farming calendar is distributed to thousands of Ontario media, grocery retail outlets, and politicians and is sold through the Farm & Food Care office. The project’s overall goal is to connect the public with the true faces of Ontario agriculture, while introducing consumers to the farmers who work 365 days each year to provide quality, local Ontario products for our homes.
Each year, Farm & Food Care holds a contest for Ontario farmers and farm families who want to tell their story. Entrants are required to submit both an informal family photo and short essay (400 words or less) describing their family. Candidates must make their primary income from agriculture.
One winner in total will be chosen from among the applicants. Applications will be accepted until March 16. Entries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to 100 Stone Road West, Suite 106, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 5L3
