Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture has launched a new website aimed at
raising the profile of local farmers.

Advertisment

The start of the marketing campaign
comes a day after the release of a report that shows Nova Scotia farmers are
getting 13 cents of every grocery dollar spent in the province. The federation
wants to boost that figure, partly with the help of the website www.meetyourfarmer.ca .

The federation says the website is
aimed at “improving the relationship’’ between farmers and consumers.

Federation vice-president Beth Densmore
says most people have no clue where their food comes from. So far, the website
has seven farmer profiles from the Annapolis Valley and Hants County, as well
as videos and stories about the farms. Included is a profile of Den Haan's Garden World and Greenhouses.
