Program Title: Women in Agriculture
Description: In this episode we talk about the changing role of women in agriculture and the future of the largest agricultural fair in the world. Wayne MacPhail speaks with Iris Meck, the force behind the Advancing Women in Agriculture conference.
Since 2014 The Advancing Women in Agriculture conference has brought together women from across Canada to share, learn and grow and farmers, producers and entrepreneurs. Over the years it's seen attendees and the agriculture sector itself change dramatically, and, for the better. Part of the change is due to the conference itself. Wayne MacPhail had a chance to speak with conference organizer, Iris Meck, about the morphing landscape and the challenges of leaning in in a sector that is still steeped in isolation.
And, buying something as natural as honey should be an easy consumer choice. But, these days, honey labelling makes that choice more complex. Does "Canada’s Favourite", mean it's Canadian honey? Does "Canada #1"? And what does "Graded in Canada" mean? To help sort it out Wayne MacPhail spoke with Guy Chartier of Bee Maid Honey.
