Mapping Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Chatham-Kent

From a news release

Planning is underway for the fifth edition of the Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Chatham-Kent map.

Since the first edition of the Buy Local! Buy Fresh! map was printed in 2007 interest from both consumers and producers has grown.

The interest in farm fresh and locally grown products has driven the demand to update the Chatham-Kent map. Consumers want to know where their products are coming from and how they are produced.

If you grow it or produce it locally why not promote it? Consumers like the convenience of one map to showcase the abundant variety of products available in our area. Buying local has lasting economic value for the region.

Chatham-Kent farmers or producers who are interested in being listed on the 2017/2018 edition of the map should contact the Kent Federation of Agriculture. Spaces are limited and the deadline to register is March 15, 2017.

The committee is also looking for agricultural organizations and businesses interested in sponsoring the 2017 map. For more information or to register to be included on the 2017 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Chatham-Kent map, contact the Kent Federation of Agriculture office at 519-674-1500 ext. 63595 or email kfa@uoguelph.ca , or you can download a copy of the registration form from our website at www.ofa.on.ca/kent.
