August 3, 2010 – The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture has launched a new website aimed at raising the profile of local farmers.
The start of the marketing campaign came 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.
