Sturgeon County Agriculture Services Board's annual agriculture tour is officially sold out.
150 people have signed up to tour the county on Friday (August 11) and learn about the various producers and agri-businesses in the region.
"It's a really great way to see a little more of Sturgeon County and also learn about what our producers and businesses are up to out here," explained Sturgeon economic development coordinator Leanne McBean. "You get a full tour and you can ask all sorts of questions and learn about all of the operations and businesses that you visit."
The tour kicks off with a breakfast at Cardiff Park, then they head off to visit several farms, bison and elk ranches as well as a fertilizer plant. After, they'll be able to join the cookout in Cardiff Park.
Local producers will offer up a taste of their finest products and show how they handle day-to-day operations that lead to a successful, safe and tasty product.
Stops this year include Majeau AG Enterprises, McEwan Fertilizers and Smokin' Elk Ranch.
Rave reviews have accompanied the tours with participants commenting they feel better connected with local producers and more educated about where their food comes from.
