Candiates sought for 15th edition of Open Doors at Quebec Farms in Montérégie
The Fédération de l’UPA (Union des producteurs agricoles) de la Montérégie is currently looking for farms interested in participating in the 15th edition of the Portes ouvertes sur les farmes du Québec event, which will take place Sunday, September 10, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All farms, small or large, and all the productions and regions of the Montérégie can submit their application before January 9, 2017 to Chantal Legault by telephone at (450) 454-5115, ext. 6233, or by email at clegault @ upa .qc.ca. Applications will then be evaluated by the local unions of the UPA.
Every year, more than 100,000 visitors go to more than 100 farms across the province to visit the Open House on Farms event. This free activity allows the citizens to know a little more about the exceptional know-how of the farmers of our country. Tastings of local products, visits of farms and their installations, demonstrations, animations and games will be offered. This free activity will take place rain or shine.
