alberta open farm days

Have you ever wondered how the food on your plate arrived in front of you? Join six of our local Barrhead producers to learn about life and work on a farm - how sustainable practices are important in protecting farming, food supply and our environment today and for the generations to come. Experience hands-on activities that will have you washing grain to feeding the animals. It's all here in Barrhead.

AUGUST 13-14, 2022


This two-day event features farms from around the Barrhead region that give you an opportunity to experience farm life and understand how food gets to your plate. It's a backstage pass to experience the people and products behind the process. It's experiential ag-tourism that allows you to taste foods directly from the producers while immersing yourself in the agricultural space.

A Canada wide event that started over 10 years ago in the Maritimes will celebrate its 10th year in Alberta in 2022.

The 2022 10th anniversary edition of Alberta Open Farm Days will be held August 13 - 14, 2022, with a goal for you to experience farm life while while learning the realities of farming in a fun and engaging way!
