How to schedule your visit on the Alberta Open Farm Days this year?
  1. Visit the farms’ profiles. Use the filter function to see farms in your area, and/or things you’d be interested in seeing.
  2. Make sure to check to see whether the farms are participating during Open Farm Days.
  3. Once you’ve found farms that you want to visit, click the “add to trip” button. These farms will now be stored to help you create your map and your directions.
  4. Then schedule your time with the farms by clicking on the button at the top of each farm profile. It will take you to a website called “Farmzy.” Complete your scheduling and you’re ready to go!

Scheduling your visits is important because it enables farms to be in compliance with Alberta Health Services guidelines (only 100 people are allowed to be at a farm at a time)
