The Lamont Open Farm Days will not be taking place this month due to low ticket sales.
 
The events planned in conjunction with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry's Open Farm Days included a pancake breakfast, tours of local farms and producers, a five course dinner and an old-fashioned barn dance.
 
"We didn't think it was possible for us to get the amount of tickets we needed in the next nine days so we had to cancel," said Heather Atkinson, communications coordinator with Lamont County.
 
The public was invited to the event to experience rural living and to develop an awareness of food production and safety.
