Alberta Canola: Fall Harvest at the Moser FarmSeptember 15, 2014
It's not everyday that you see a city girl like me out on a farm. Last week I was invited out by the Alberta Canola Producers Commission to visit the farm of one of the many producers of Canola here in the province.
- Canola is part of the Brassica family - mustard, cabbage and cauliflower are also Brassicas
- Canola seed is Canada's third largest grain export
- Canola oil has the lowest level of saturated fat - it is a heart healthy oil!
If you're ever interested in checking out your local farm in Alberta, check out Alberta Open Farm Days where you can learn where your food comes from. Open farm days are over for 2014 but I encourage you to search locally for farm tours or wait for the 2015 event! It is so great to learn about your local producers and support them in all that they do.
