As we across Haldimand-Norfolk sit down to dinner over the Thanksgiving weekend, we are reminded to thank farmers, farm workers, and food processors for their role in putting food on our tables.
Every year, Ontario sets aside a week in early October to recognize agriculture. Agriculture Week is dedicated to celebrating the abundance of food that our farmers produce, the people the industry employs, the rural communities it supports, and the economic engine it fuels.
