Producer of the Year
Next week is the annual Canadian International Farm Show held at the International Centre in Toronto, ON. While this show caters more to larger farms, especially those involved in cash crops or large scale livestock operations, there may be a few things at the show that will capture our attention.
Each year for the last few years the event has showcased what they call the 'Producer of the Year' or rather producers... Three farms are chosen from a series of nominees, one small, one medium and one large operation, to receive this award. Nominations are submitted anonymously and a committee then selects the winners.
As it happens, Creek Shore Farms has won the award for 2012 in the small producer category. We are very excited about this and would like to thank (and know who you are, we really would) the person who anonymously nominated us for this award. While it is a bit ironic that such a new farm has won we are thankful for the recognition and hope that we can continue to pursue the foundations of our farm we have established to support our community in any way we can.
