Meet in the Middle: February 16, 2017

Celebrating Canada’s Agriculture Day

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go farther go together” an African Proverb

 

That’s the platform that helped launched a conversation between 22 Agriculturally-influenced partners who decided to collaborate on “Meet in the Middle; a celebration of the industry, the consumer and of course, food.

Collectively this group is bringing together 150 of the up-and-comings, the established, the industry leaders, the fifth generations and the never-set-foot-on-a-farm to talk about food over a five course meal. Each course is prepared by a different local chef and features food grown in Alberta, paired with a craft beverage from a local brewery or distillery.

What better way to celebrate Canada’s Agriculture Day than bringing consumers, producers and industry leaders together – all at the same table!

The inaugural “Meet in the middle” It all takes place on February 16, 2017 at the Willow Lane Barn east of Olds, Alberta starting at 5:00 pm.
