Canada's Agriculture Day Ottawa
Let’s celebrate the food we love together! Join us for an all-day event for Canada’s Agriculture Day in Ottawa on February 12, 2019.
A celebration with the Alberta agricultural community, connecting farms, industry leaders and consumers, and sharing their stories.
A gathering of people from a variety of backgrounds in a central location, focused on farmers, food production and great food, to listen and learn from each other- “meeting in the middle” with some consumers.
We're celebrating all things Canadian Agriculture during our week-long I LOVE Agriculture event!
Come for a farm tour and watch our robotic milker in action, view our Hydrogreen where we grow wheat grass indoors year-round, interact with our dairy cows and take part in our AMOOZING RACE, which showcases innovative farm technology and connects guests to where their food comes from!
Guests can look forward to:
- Tour discounts
- Photo booth
- A giveaway and colouring contest
- Ag swag
- Opportunities to register for special Ag themed workshops with our community partners
- Milk sampling
We can't wait to celebrate local agriculture with you.

Our hackathon brings together students, entrepreneurs, and industry professionals with the goal of identifying agricultural issues and proposing technological solutions. This event begins on Friday night with a keynote speech from Warren Bills (xarvio), then the floor is open for individuals or companies to pitch their ideas to be 'hacked!' On Saturday, teams 'hack' issues and design a technological solution (software, hardware). Teams then present their designs to a panel of judges. We are looking for individuals with expertise in computer science, agriculture, business or engineering. All are welcome!
