Agriculture Week in Newmarket-Aurora

Published on October 04, 2021

October 4-10 is Agriculture Week in Newmarket-Aurora and across all of Ontario! It is the perfect opportunity to thank our hardworking farmers for growing and making food the people of Ontario enjoy throughout the year.

 

The past 18 months have been challenging for everyone in Ontario but we’ve seen the outstanding commitment of our farmers and food processors to ensure our food supply remained strong and continued to provide healthy and local food for our community.

 

Happy Agriculture Week to all growers in Newmarket and Aurora! Did you know that Ontario’s agri-food sector contributes over $46 billion to our GDP & employs over 720,000 people making it the largest sectors in the province? Thank you to everyone who keep food on our grocery stores & our kitchen tables! #OntAg

 

This Ontario Agriculture Week, we want to thank and recognize all the farmers and farm families across our great province who sustainably grow the over 200 different agricultural commodities that feed and nourish us. Good things really do grow in Ontario! #OntAg
